We are not sure the age of Scooter. It is unlikely RVRI knows since he was tagged as an adult.

2) He fed many a chick and was father to Rapunzel, a chick that survived 5 years. He wintered in Mexico on the Gulf of California. He completed the 2020 migration to MT, but passed away soon thereafter. We were blessed to follow & learn from Scooter. Fly high, precious Scooter!

9/30 1) It is with sad hearts we must inform you of the passing of Scooter. He was outfitted with a sat-pack as an adult. His breeding nest was on the MPG Ranch. Below is a capture of his sat. tracks at his nest & Scooter with chick in 2019.

9/30 Lucky was a nestling who fell out of its nest along the Bitterroot River. Lucky was admitted to Wild Skies Raptor Rehabilitation, and RVRI outfitted it with a GPS unit just before it released. Lucky is currently in the big state of Texas.
