A Successful Day for the Ferruginous Hawk Crew

IMG_20150611_073336Jesse Watson is out catching Ferruginous Hawks for his research – he is studying the effects of industrial development on hawk movements. Today was a productive and exciting day – he caught a male and female Ferruginous hawk! It is rare to capture to both members of a breeding pair, so this is a particularly exciting catch. Both were banded, and the male was fitted with a GPS transmitter before being released. Check out Jesse’s research page for more information about his project.
