A Clarification on the Effects of Urbanization on Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) Habitat Selection
In 2018, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) published an Open-File Report (Tracey and others, 2018) presenting a Bayesian habitat selection model for golden eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) in San Diego County, California. The model used telemetry data to examine the effects of urban development, exurban development, and topography (characterized by a topographic position index and a vector ruggedness measure, TPI and VRM respectively) on golden eagle habitat selection probability. Based on figures 3 and 6 of Tracey and others (2018), we received inquiries from cooperators (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and California Department of Fish and Wildlife) about how the probability of eagle use declines with decreasing distance to the urban edge. Here, we clarify our results by addressing that question.
