Golden Eagle Fieldwork
Museum staff Bailey, Niedrach, and Landberg took several field
trips to nearby cliffs in Douglas and Weld County to study the
golden eagle circa 1935. They suspended bird blinds to photograph
the nest with young chicks. Imagine using the bumber of this
1938 Chevy Suburban for an anchor. With great difficulty one
can see "Denver Museum of Natural History" hand-lettered on the
door of the car -- which would be worth being in a museum itself
were it still around.
Check back in a week to see what we find next!
