BETA03 was tagged and banded on November 26, 2020, at the Vancouver Landfill in Delta, BC. He appeared to be male based on measurements taken at the time of banding and that was confirmed with a blood test; his USFW band number is 0709-01998 and he has a more readable blue band on his left leg with the characters H over 3. BETA03’s age at banding appeared to be about 8 months, so he likely hatched in the spring of 2020 (as did BETA04/Loki).
Please visit our Hancock Wildlife Forum thread for more information about what BETA03 has been doing since then.
Picture of BETA03 coming soon.
