This bird was captured in a Pennsylvania Game Commission duck trap, then photographed and banded. There are very few records of them for Pennsylvania.

Assisted with the Fall raptor count at Hawk Mountain Sanctuary in the 1970's. Monitored the Spring hawk migration from Smith Gap in 1980 and 1981 and from Morgan Hill from 1982 to 1987. Started the 'Eastern PA Birdline' in 1991. Birded 50 states, six Canadian provinces, and the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.
