On February 24, 2008, we collared male FP-164. He did not have a transponder, so was estimated at 2 years of age. He was in very good condition at 90 lbs.

FP-164 was located at the same site during routine monitoring flights on June 30, 2008 and on July 2 and 5, 2008 however, his collar did not emit the mortality signal. On July 7, 2008 his remains are retrieved from that location. Examination of his remains (only bones) at necropsy did not indicate intraspecific aggression or other cause of death.
