Deceased: Unknown cause, Winter 2015-2016
Alpha Flag Code: HY
Capture date: 5-31-15
Location: Grand Teton National Park
Namesake: We didn’t get a chance to name HY before she died.
HY bred in the beautiful Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. She spent her winter near the Colorado River Delta where the river runs into the Gulf of California. Her transmitter showed strange movement patterns in early 2016 and we later lost track of her. It appears that she may have died and her transmitter floated out to sea for a while before sinking to the bottom.
