Request for sightings of wing-tagged Imperial Eagle

A subadult Imperial Eagle in 3rd year plumage underwent rehabilitation at the Kasetsart University Raptor Rehabilitation Center and was released on 12th January 2008 at an eagle foraging site in Petchaburi province.

Prior to release the bird was fitted with wing tags and leg bands in order to recognise it on future occasions in hope that its movement can be tracked.

The band on the right tarsus is numbered 17A00001 DNP Bangkok Thailand and the wing tags are green, fitted to both wings and carry the number 17A 01 DNP BKK; the wing tags can be seen in the following photograph.

Dr Chaiyan Kasorndorkbua requests that anyone seeing this bird contact him by e-mail: or with details of the location, date and condition of the bird.

The rehabilitation and release of the eagle was in cooperation of Kasetsart University Raptor Rehabilitation Center, Thailand's Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation and Wild Bird Rehabilitation and Release Fund (operated by Bird Conservation Society of Thailand, BCST).

Dr Chaiyan Kasorndorkbua also requests that visiting birders submit there records of raptor observations to him at the same address for publication in future issues of Raptors Aloft.
