I am pasting a message from the President of the Idaho Falconer's association. I know there are not many people who post here from Idaho, but maybe a lurker will see this or perhaps this Bird has done some migrating (although my gut tells me it is someone in Idaho). In fact I think this could be someone who wasn't legally practicing falconry . . . .
I'm going to get a permit with my sponsor to try and trap this bird the next time it shows up, to remove the jesses and cope it. I can't attach the photo to this posting but if anyone wants it or the phone number of the person who has seen this hawk please email me at email@example.com
. . . .
For the second time in the last four month or so, I have had a report of people in the Micron area of SE Boise reporting an adult Red-Tailed Hawk with jesses on. It appears to be the same dark Red-Tail with an overgrown beak and jess (With slits!). If you recognize this hawk (see attachment), let me know. The lady who sent me the photo is: Erika Rush, telephone # XXX-XXXX We need to at least try to recapure it and remove the jesses.
