TERF07 was tagged and banded on December 12, 2020, at the Vancouver Landfill in Delta, BC. She appears to be female based on measurements taken at the time of banding; her USFW band number is 0709-00285 and she has a more readable blue band on her left leg with the characters H over 4. TERF07’s age at banding appeared to be about 3-1/2 years old, so she likely hatched in the spring of 2017. Myles and David noted multiple stress bars in her feathers, which can indicate lack of food, stress or illness when the feather was being formed.
Please visit our Hancock Wildlife Forum thread for more information about what TERF07 has been doing since then.
Picture of TERF07 coming soon.
