Re: Ferruginous Hawk Telemetry
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
This recent publication does two things:
* It shows where Ferruginous Hawks wintering in our area came from in one study (see p. 274, map a), and
* It gives the contacts of the researchers in this study who might be in the best position to reveal the history of the bird recently seen by John Deacon.
Just a thought, but the GGRO has a telemetry program. Depending on what hawks they capture and their financial resources, they usually have 3-4 a year that they can radio tag.
Hmmmmm, so they can tell us when it arrived here, where it’s been, when it leaves to head north and where it nests. Yeah, no reason to contact them.
There’s probably no need to contact anybody. After all, it has a tracking unit on it.

Hi John -
That definitely looks like a tracking unit. Very cool. I do no know who one would contact to find out more about it.
At Mitchell Road yesterday, I took numerous photos of the two Ferruginous Hawks that are frequenting the area. Can anyone that is familiar with radio telemetry tell me if, by looking at this photo, if this bird is equipped with a tracking unit? This "string" over his back was observable in almost all the pics. Thanks
