We thank the many experts who commented on the origin and identity of the
mystery falcon in Toronto.
Origin: Most said it was an escaped falconer's bird because of its leg
band, extreme tameness, and apparent hybrid appearance.
Identification: Many thought that it was a probable hybrid Gyrfalcon x
Saker Falcon. We may do a detailed analysis next week.
If you haven't seen the four photos of this falcon, please see then on
Jean's website via her signature below.
Next I'll send an e-mail discussing the Toronto falcon that was posted on
the listserve ID-Frontiers.
