A peregrine is being tracked along the East Coast. As of 5 am today, the bird was transmitting from a location near Moosewood lake in Maine. If anyone sees this bird , it is requested that you get in touch with folks in description underneath in this message. http://www.frg.org/track_pefa11.htm A female Peregrine Falcon named "Elizabetha" tagged with a satellite transmitter is now heading south from northeastern Canada, and is expected to pass Hawk Mountain Sanctuary within the week, perhaps as early as Saturday or Sunday, October 18 and 19. The falcon was banded on its wintering grounds in Chile, South America, on January 22, 2008, by the Falcon Research Group. Researchers there fitted the bird with a Hawk Mountain telemetry unit. The 'back-pack' satellite units have a short antenna and are easy to see. Hawk Mountain is now asking all birders to watch for the falcon in the next few days. Peregrine Falcons are fast-flying, and strong flapping raptors, with long, pointed wings, and a black face or "moustache." This particular peregrine will stand apart due its antenna that extends at a 45-degree angle from her back. Those who see the bird should email Bud Anderson at the Falcon Research Group, [log in to unmask], and Keith Bildstein at Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, [log in to unmask], and be sure to include the day, time and location.
