Subject: [obol] Re: Rough-legged Hawk PDX
I have heard back through various channels that the hawk in question was
originally banded in Nome Alaska as a rehab bird, and it is in its 4th
year.

And that - the multiple tail bands and lack of dark belly band are good
field marks for an adult male.

So my suggestion that this was a first-year bird was clearly nonsense.

The silver lining is - I am learning.

Thank you to everyone who sent me information.
