TERF17 is a young female adult eagle who was tagged November 5, 2021, at the OWL (Orphaned Wildlife) Rehabilitation Society facility in Delta, BC, after recovering from a fight with another female, TERF16. Myles noted that she was a younger bird with some coloration in her eye and flecking around her head. Her USFW band number is 0679-04620 and she has an easier-to-read blue band on her left leg with the characters K over 7. We’ve learned that she had been at OWL before – she spent a bit of time there in 2015 after having some issues fledging, so she was probably about 6-1/2 in the fall of 2021.
Please visit our Hancock Wildlife Forum thread for more information about what TERF17 has been doing.
Thanks to Myles Lamont and the folks at OWL for the photo of TERF17 on November 5, 2021.
