TERF01 is an interesting bird! Captured on 23 February 2018, and determined to be female, it was soon noticed she had an existing leg band! Turns out, she was a rehabilitated bird that was submitted to Orphaned Wildlife Rescue Center in Delta, BC with an injured wing. The bird was originally found on Pasley Island, BC, rehabilitated and released on the same island again in July 2017. Given it had proven its capabilities of surviving post-release for several months, we deployed a transmitter on it to help determine its long-term survival and help address some of the knowledge gaps that exist around the survival rates of rehabilitated raptors. We are hopeful she can help us answer this question and show some of the great work being undertaken at OWL. She has a yellow leg band A over 6 on her left leg.
