I received a phone call that someone had found a female hatch-year columbarius merlin on the west side of Missoula, MT with jesses and/or anklets attached. Unfortunately, the bird is dead.
I got the call from someone wondering if I was looking for my bird--thankfully, she is not mine. I don't know anyone that is but if anyone's heard anything...this is a sad situation but it would be some closure for someone that's been looking.
