The Passing of a Grand Old Lady


  1. Mary Ann, I’m very sorry to hear about the loss of this beautiful Peregrine Falcon up there. This is so sad. (I think PF’s have become one of my favorite birds, along with eagles.) I hope she left behind many healthy young ones over the years.

    1. They were my first loves along with the hawks. She really was the guiding star of the local peregrine falcon community, the anchor. Everyone is quite sad but yes, she left behind a huge number of chicks! I forgot the precise amount. Should look that up.

  2. Linda Kontol says:

    Mary Ann I know you and many people are very sad about Princess. She sounds like she had many chicks and a very successful life there. She was so beautiful in the photos.

    1. Thank you, Linda. It is a very sad day for so many. It is the equivalent of losing Iris except that Iris is an international celebrity. She was a splendid bird and left lots of chicks. Urban hawks face so many difficulties. She had great care.
