Attached are some photos taken by Abby Nelson, Becky Gretton and Peg DiBenedetto of the large, spirited, adult female golden captured in
Delaware County yesterday. The landowners asked that the people present be limited to a small number.
This bird has been named Jean in honor of Jean Miller, founding member, former President of DOAS and a long-time member of the board. She was fiesty bird and a challenge at times for Michael DiBenedetto who did most of the handling.
