Tracking BETA02

Post by gemini » Sun Sep 22, 2019 1:56 am

Opening this topic for reports on BETA02's activities.

BETA02 was picked found injured and nearly dead by our one of our directors in January 2019. She was incredibly lethargic and underweight and presumed to have suffered from rodenticide or lead poisoning. She was taken to OWL Rehab Center in Delta and was subsequently nursed back to health and released with a transmitter on March 21 2019. She left nearly immediately thereafter to head north to Alaska for the breeding season. This bird is presumed to be about 4.5 years old based upon some black flecking and subadult plumage in her wings and breast.

It looks as if BETA02 checked in on January 2 2020!

We had not heard from her since July 30, 2019, at which point she was in the maze of lines just outside Whitehorse:

There weren't a lot of data points uploaded - hopefully that will improve if she heads back into BC where there are more Canadian cell towers. Here's a closer look at the general area where she's been since leaving the more populated area - lots of parks and preserves which likely don't have cell towers, then to the Alaska panhandle, where most towers use US frequencies.

She was in Alaska when she checked in - and we may not hear from her again until she reaches BC.

BETA02 has checked in - and she's almost arrived at the Vancouver/Delta area!

Looking back, it looks as if she was near Prince Rupert on January 7 and headed south after that - and I may have missed seeing her because I usually look at the combined map in satellite view, and her gray color is hard to see on the dark green of much of the map.

It looks as if she stayed a bit north of Campbell River from January 8-14, and then headed south to where she is today.

Given how chilly it is in the Vancouver area this week, I do hope she doesn't keep heading south to Mexico!!
