BACA03 (“Croydon Sr”)

BACA03 was originally banded in 2009; he fell from his nest in June of that year and was hand reared at the OWL (Orphaned Wildlife) Rehabilitation Society facility in Delta, BC, receiving his USFW band before his release in August 2009. He was recaptured on December 4, 2018, near 164th Street and 16th Avenue, Surrey, and received his tracking tag and a black/yellow band on his left leg with the characters C over 6. He hatched in the spring of 2009.

Please visit our Hancock Wildlife Forum thread for more information about what BACA03 has been doing since then.

Updates

BACA03 and his mate raised 2 chicks in 2020.  They had two chicks again in 2021, both of which ended up on the ground before they were quite ready to fledge.  We think one was seen flying afterwards, and the other was rescued by OWL and was released with a tracker – see TERF15’s page for more details.

Added October 2021 – Before establishing his current nest, BACA03 and his mate had a nest near Croydon Drive and 20 Avenue in Surrey – a large nest in a large tree where they lived for at least 8 years, successfully producing offspring. In the summer of 2018, it was discovered that someone had intentionally cut into the tree on both sides, killing the tree and putting it at risk of blowing over (more info and pictures here). The tree had to be taken down – and the eagles had to make a new nest. And that is how BACA03 and his mate came to their current location – and why we are giving him the nickname Croydon Sr. (Offspring TERF15 is Croydon Jr)
