Subject: IBET Patagial tag on Red Tailed Hawk
My thanks to Matthew Cvetas, Becky Dyer, and Henry Kim for directing me to
the USDA at O'Hare for researching the Red Tailed Hawk with the patagial tag
spotted in my back yard. I was able to take a picture of it and it was
determined that "my" bird was a hatch year bird when captured at O'Hare on
10/18/2010 and was relocated to a state park in Whiteside County, IL. The
bird is now hanging out in Lincolnshire and Ryerson Conservation Area.
