When we looked at our recent dreary-day Bald Eagle photos more closely, we noticed that it had a band on one or both legs, and no transmitter.
Does anyone know if the Ridgefield male Bald Eagle (known as Al) is banded? (We known that female, known as Alice, has bands and transmitter.)
Is this a new adult eagle wintering in the area this winter, or is it our pal Al? (We are thinking that it's a wintering bird.)
(A big thank you to our colleague Mimi Sabatino for cleaning up the pic to the point you can almost see the numeral "5" on the left band.)
