TERF15 was tagged and banded on August 18, 2021, at the OWL (Orphaned Wildlife) Rehabilitation Society facility in Delta, BC. TERF15 has a blue band with silver letters on his/her left leg with the characters K over 4; I’m hoping to get more information soon, but I believe he was one of two chicks raised this year by our tagged eagle BACA03 and his mate. Both eaglets ended up on the ground, and TERF15 was rescued and taken to OWL. (I think I heard that the other one was later seen flying, but I need to check that as well.) TERF15 was checking in fairly often for a week or so, and we haven’t heard anything from him since then. Being ever the optimist, I’m hoping that’s because he headed north and is somewhere with more salmon than cell towers – and if we’re lucky, he’ll be heading south again soon, so we may get more updates.
Please visit our Hancock Wildlife Forum thread for more information about what TERF15 has been doing.
Thanks to Myles Lamont and the folks at OWL for the photo of TERF15.
