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!
