In the summer of 1968 I was working for Olympic National Park out of park 
HQ in Port Angeles. A crew bus (large van) was cruising with its windows 
open and captured a Red-tail in much the same way, and when one of the 
people in the bus tried to grab it he got spiked a couple of times.  The 
bird died and the crew threw it in the garbage.  I pulled it back out when 
I saw it and, when the park naturalist didn't want it, took it to PLU's 
Harold Leraas, a biology prof and birder, who saved and cataloged the skin.
