The American Eagle Foundation (AEF) hopes you will find this Eagle Blog informative and helpful!
Our Eagle Blog editor is Bob Hatcher. He retired March 31, 2001 from the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) after 23 years as the Coordinator for Non-game and Endangered Species. He began Tennessee’s bald eagle nesting recovery program in 1979, when Tennessee had had no successful nests since 1961. He has coordinated or been involved in the release of 337 young bald eagles at 7 Tennessee hack sites from 1980 through 2011, when more than 180 young fledged from at least 110 successful nests.
Bob assisted AEF President Al Cecere in the formation of the AEF in 1985 and is a long-time supporter and adviser. Since April 2001, Bob has responded to eagle inquiries submitted to AEF.
