ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The state Department of Environmental Conservation is color-marking and banding northern harriers in eastern New York to gather more information on local movements of the hawk, which is threatened in the state.
Biologists are marking the underside of flight feathers or tail feathers and banding with colored and numbered leg bands. They want people who spot these marked birds to email details to Mark NOHA@gw.dec.state.ny.us.
