This adult female was originally banded by Norman Smith at Logan Airport in the winter of 2015-15, then recaptured at Logan the following winter by Smith and Jeff Turner, tagged and released on Cape Cod Dec. 30, 2015. Having spent much of the winter at smaller airports in Rhode Island, she moved back to Logan in mid-March 2016, and was killed by the engine blast from a jet three weeks later — sadly, a not-uncommon fate for owls at large airports.
