A "Tail" of Georgia's Eagles
Presented by Robert Sargent, Ph.D.
Conference Room C
Gwinnett Justice & Administration Center
Come and learn about the conservation efforts, past and present, of GA DNR's Wildlife Resources Division on behalf of bald and golden eagles.
Bob Sargent conned his major professor into letting him take an ornithology class while doing his master's research (a deer study). That class derailed his career vision, as he has been consumed by things with feathers ever since. He studied the ecology of migratory songbirds for his Ph.D. (UGA), and then worked for 20 years as the natural resources manager of Robins Air Force Base. Bob was an adjunct teacher at three universities for 11 years. He served as president of the Oconee Rivers Audubon Society, Ocmulgee Audubon Society, and GOS, as well as co-editor of The Oriole. He is currently chairperson of GOS education committee and editor of the GOShawk. In 2015, he was hired as program manager of Georgia DNR's nongame office in Forsyth. He supervises a team of biologists, and is the agency's lead for the conservation of raptors, especially bald eagles and peregrine falcons. Bob continues to nurture his teaching bug through his support of Camp TALON, the Youth Birding Competition, the Youth Christmas Bird Count, and by arranging GOS scholarships to send teenagers to birding camps.
We are back inside at the GJAC this month!
