Subject: [obol] Re: Strange looking hawk at PDX airport

When captured at the airport, Red-tails are outfitted with orange plastic wing markers to help track them after their release at some distant site. This bird apparently came back to the general area but has stayed out of the way of the Port of Portland.
With a scope you would probably see an alpha-numeric code on the "patagial marker". Lars
