Meet Ahsoka – a light-morph harlani carrying a transmitter in Kansas

Meet Ahsoka, an after fourth-cycle harlani that wears the color band blue – 3Z!

Luke added this excellent light harlani to our growing group of birds carrying transmitters. We first found this individual last year on its wintering territory just outside of Lawrence, Kansas. We checked regularly during our trapping efforts last winter to see if it was trappable, and continued doing so this winter. It usually perches in trees that are either not accessible or are in areas that are difficult to trap, so our efforts were always thwarted. But, luck and opportunity finally came together and Luke was able to pull it over to a trap and capture it. Nice work Luke!
