TERF06

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.

We were initially very worried about TERF06 because we did not receive any data from her tracker for almost five months after she was released.  And then, on April 24, 2021 – she checked in!  It appears that she flew across the border to Washington State immediately after she was released, and stayed in Washington and (mostly) Oregon.  There was a time when our trackers didn’t work with US cell towers (they are a different frequency than those in Canada), and now they do, so perhaps there was a software update or something.  She crossed back into BC on June 9 and headed slowly north, crossing into Alaska on July 2nd; she stayed in the lower part of the Alaskan panhandle through October 25th, and then headed south, and by November 29, 2021, she was back in Washington State.

You can read more about her travels on our Hancock Wildlife Forum thread and we’d love to have you post your observations there.
