Still hoping someone somewhere has an “extra” Goshawk–!!
Facts: no more permits available for NM birds until next year.
Colorado won’t let its birds out. I don’t have a vehicle that would make it to, say, Idaho even if I had no obligations.
I haven’t enough money to buy a breeder’s bird outright (though I’d be prepared to pay installments if there are any chamber birds still around).
I thought of local passage birds of other species but most of my quarry seems to be in at least some pinon- juniper, which makes it hard for Prairie falcons and Ferruginous hawks. Cooper’s are a remote possibility but are spooked by my intimate living quarters , and small for fur especially jacks. It really gets too cold here in December and january for Harrises.
I don’t want a screamer (see”intimate quarters”, or any old pic here) or half- blind WNV survivors, but would consider all other honest offers, and would of course pay shipping (to Albuquerque).
It would save my season. Friends of friends anywhere?
