Raptor Wednesday

This is the second year for this nest.

The mate, presumably the male. Distinctively wing-gapped. This one is banded with both a federal band (silver–not much good to the observer unless the bird is in hand) and a light blue with alphanumeric 10 over A (just readable in photographs) band. I reported to the Bird Banding Lab of the USGS, the clearing house for all banding projects.

This was reported back to me: the bird was banded 11/01/2019 near North Highland in Putnam County, NY, by a bander from the Port Authority of NY & NJ. North Highland is about 70 miles straight north of here. Sex was then marked as unknown; the bird was judged to have been hatched in 2017 or earlier.
