Report from Michigan about Lorraine 2016 hatch Yellow Pages Scarborough Nest.

December 30, 2019 - Scarborough - Yellow Pages

Marion Nash Reports:

She’s in great shape. I had been seeing a pair hunting together off and on for a few weeks and wonder if she’s one of the banded birds I had been seeing. I was never able to get a good look at either bird’s band combo, so it’s hard to say. I have a contact with the Michigan DNR that has records of all of the breeding pairs in the area and I was going to check with her to see about your bird.
All raptors we trap and relocate are part of wildlife control operations at Detroit Metropolitan Airport. She was trapped in a swedish goshawk trap and relocated to state land in Chelsea, Michigan. Getting her away from the airport environment is the safest thing for her as well as the aircraft.
Please let me know if you have any other questions. Happy New Year.
