October 17, 2000 -- Placing the satellite transmitters on peregrines is an intricate operation, and ideally requires three people.  In this case the transmitter has just been put on Nate, and Marcel Gahbauer (foreground) is checking the fit of the neoprene harness across the breast, while Mark Heaton of the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (left, mostly off camera) holds the transmitter in place on Nate's back, and Natalie Helferty holds firmly on to Nate himself.  Note that Nate is wearing a falconer's hood; this is used to keep the bird calm while the transmitter is being attached.
