Keen (3Z) was captured the morning of November 5th, 2013, using the net launcher. In the winter of 2013/2014 he spent time near Juneau, Alaska, before moving south along the Inside Passage into British Columbia. He returned to the upper part of the Inside Passage in summer 2014, and came back to the Chilkat River in fall. He spent time on the Chilkat before heading south to Vancouver Island, British Columbia midwinter, in early 2015. To date, he is the eagle that has traveled farthest south, just 90 miles from the Canada/Washington border. He spent summer of 2015 around the ABC islands before making his way back to the Chilkat in fall. His name is adapted from the Tlingit phrase for “flying around”, keen át wudikeen.
