Name: Kút

Sex: Female

Age: Adult

Status: Active

Kút (3R) was captured late morning on November 5th, 2013 using a perch snare. This adult female spent the earliest part of her winter near Juneau, before moving across the inlet to the tip of Admiralty Island, where she’s spent the winter, spring, and summer in a very concentrated area. This female is a nesting bird, and her movements during the summers of 2014 and 2015 suggest that she reproduced. She continues to stay close to home, occasionally making short forays elsewhere. Her name means “nest” in Tlingit.
