Subject: [obol] Re: Rough-legged Hawk PDX - Part 2
Someone posted this last year about the PDX Rough-legged Hawk, assuming
it's the same bird:

*"It came from a nest site in Alaska the summer of 2016, spent some time in
a rehab facility in Alaska as a result of an injury, and missed the
opportunity to migrate south with its cohort. It was flown to Cascade
Raptor Center near Eugene where it spent additional time prior to release.
It was caught at PDX back in April or May of this year and released in
Washington Co. It returned soon thereafter and, as you all know, has been
around since. So, it's confused. The hope is that it will find some
friends when the Rough-legged Hawks return to our area this fall and follow
them back north in the spring. If not, it may end up pairing with a local
redtail."*
