Red-tailed Hawk, "9/A", Vancouver, Washington. Overcast day. Image taken November 23, 2015. Nikon P900.

9/A

9/A hung out near the Vancouver Mall and could be seen from State Route 500. 9/A was first observed in October 2015. Last seen February 20, 2016.

From pdxraptors.com ... "9/A was trapped at the PDX airport on May 29, 2015 as a second year bird. On May 30, 2015, 9/A was released in Clatskanie, Oregon. As you might have observed, this bird has a bill abnormality and is exhibiting long-billed syndrome. This syndrome causes abnormal growth of the bill. Fortunately, the long-billed syndrome is not impeding 9/A's ability to hunt and ingest food."
