Megan Helsel shared this photo of a Red-tailed Hawk that was banded and released this earlier this week at the NJMC’s banding station by Naturalist Mike Newhouse and his terrific team.
So next time you’re photographing raptors on Disposal Road, keep a shutter cocked for this guy.
Wow, too cool!! Is that the first time they’ve gotten a Red-tail?
I’m waiting for a Bald Eagle to find it’s way into one of the mist nets …. Hang on tight, Gabi!
