TERF06 was tagged and banded on November 29, 2020, at the Vancouver Landfill in Delta, BC. She appeared to be female and that was confirmed with a blood test; her USFW band number is 0709-01999 and she has a more readable blue band on her left leg with the characters K over 1. TERF06’s age at banding appeared to be about 8 months old, so she hatched in the spring of 2020.
Unfortunately, as of April 16, 2021, she has not uploaded any data. I’m thinking/hoping that the transmitter was a dud because we have not received any signals from her. I think that if something happened to her, we should have had at least had a few reports, so it is most likely an issue with the tracker, not her. (Written by JudyB, long time cam watcher and professional optimist, not a scientist.)
We do have a Hancock Wildlife Forum thread for more information in case TERF06’s transmitter begins broadcasting, but at this point, that seems unlikely.
This is a time when I just love being wrong – TERF06 just uploaded data on April 24 – and it goes all the way back to right after she was tagged! Look at all the places she’s been! (Note – her path is easier to see in map view.)
Picture of TERF06 coming soon.
