BACA01 is an adult male captured on 09 February 2018 at Vancouver Landfill in Delta, about 20kms east of Vancouver as the eagle flies. It was banded by Myles Lamont and Sandi Lee. This bird interestingly travelled south towards Bellingham, WA shortly after release and we lost all contact with it for several weeks until it reappeared on March 11 2018 near the Canadian border in Sumas, WA. While away, the bird travelled down to the Oregon/Washington border along the Columbia River just south of Kennewick, WA and spent several days along the Columbia River before heading north back to Canada. This bird was given a blue leg band M over 2 on its left leg. Keep an eye out for him!
