Meet "Goldie" (or maybe that is "Goldy"). This is Justin's new bird, and I guess could be called my "step-bird" or "god-child bird" or something silly like that. She was trapped under my license, then immediately transferred as a gift to Justin, due to the loss of Annabelle. She retains, or better shows off the golden breast feathers which some of the Eastern red tailed hawk juveniles show, but which I have not noticed that prominently in all the birds I have worked with. Justin was going to adopt the practice of naming his birds alphabetically, starting with A on the first bird, then B for this one, but he got out-voted by his wife and kids, so his new bird is being called "Goldie". I guess I need to check with his wife to find out how she is spelling it.
