A friend of mine has recently lost his 13year old white Gyr in the Newburyport/ Sailsbury, MA area. She is an experienced grouse hawk who has had some run ins with eagles in the past. While out flying a bald eagle came in the area and she took off.
She is fitted with two transmitters on frequency 218.1MHz
It is Alberto Palleroni's gyr. We have had a few sightings but nothing on the telemetry yet.
Blackstone meet went well. Tom Early never showed so I couldn't take my general practicle, but the bird was to fat anyways. Dick Morrison and a first year apprentice that Dick took out while we were all at lunch were the only ones to take game, a bunnie each. But it was a nice relaxed meet.
