WABASHA, Minn. - The National Eagle Center is tracking the migration habits a new Golden Eagle named Jack.

Jack was captured Monday near Duluth, where he was outfitted with a location transmitter before being released.

While bald eagles can be spotted fishing along rivers, golden eagles hunt birds and small mammals in prairie land.

Educator at the National Eagle Center says, "We'll be able to better understand where they're going, and we know that they've been a lot of places in northern Canada. But we're also going to learn more about what their winter habitat requirements are here in southeast Minnesota."

To track Jack and other eagles on their annual migration visit  You can also find information on attending a Golden Eagle field trip to spot the birds up close and in person!
