New Zealand Bird Banding & Banders: Harrier Update


I have not done a lot in the method of banding just recently generally because of a clinical problem. Had a small op which really did not recover as intended, so I am a little bit limited for some time.

Ruud as well as I did procure bent on the Wild animals health center that is based near Willowbank as well as band some birds that remain in healing prior to they are launched. There was 1 Little Owl as well as 3 Harriers, 2 of the Harriers were roadway casualties, 1 from close to Kaikoura, the various other near Group Hillside. The 3rd bird is struggling with lead poisoning as well as originated from near Hanmer Springs.

There have actually been 2 roadway deaths reported. One was a bird we grouped at Shore, as well as it was located dead on Harts Rd concerning 400m where it was grouped 89 days earlier back in July.

The Harts Rd bird revealing its bands. I wish the bands are still as very easy to review in a number of years’ time as opposed to simply a number of months.

The various other was located concerning 25k on the eastern side of the Hamner Springs exit ramp on St Freeway 7. It had actually been grouped simply north of Blenheim in April 2020 by Dave Bell. This has to do with 170k away, so it had actually made fairly a trip.
