Immature Barred Owl, Strix varia
(see #37 on list below)

All photos, text & tables © Hilton Pond Center

Of more than 66,700 birds banded since 1982 at Hilton Pond Center for Piedmont Natural History, only 37 had been reported (through 23 Sep 2017) as found dead or recaptured and released away from the Center but within surrounding York County. This is an extremely low rate of only about 0.06%.

On the table below, birds highlighted in GREEN were retrapped and released by other banders (or hand-caught by other persons); those in BLACK were found dead; and those in RED were killed by cats. Mourning Doves were shot legally during hunting season; any other shootings were illegal and punishable by state and federal laws.

NOTE: If you encounter a banded bird, please report it to the U.S. Bird Banding Laboratory. Your discovery may lead to our learning something new and important about bird migration, longevity, site fidelity, or general population dynamics.

AGE KEY

  • L = Local (bird hatched locally and was banded as nestling, or as recent fledgling incapable of sustained flight)
  • HY = Hatch Year (bird hatched in current year)
  • AHY = After Hatch Year (bird hatched in a previous but unknown year)
  • 2Y = Second Year (bird hatched in preceding year)
  • A2Y = After Second Year (bird hatched not in preceding year but sometime prior to that; follow same formula for A3Y, A4Y, etc.)
  • U = Unknown (bird's age could not be determined; usually used in fall when HY birds are indistinguishable from adults)
