Beatrix: the Canadian Peregrine Falcon


Beatrix, the Canadian Peregrine Falcon standing on a branchBeatrix arrived at RWRC in March of 2016 after being hit by hail during a storm. We posted a facebook photo and found, soon after, that she was no average falcon. She was the lead breeding female from the Peregrine Falcon Recovery Project in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The Peregrine Falcon Recover Project, a conservation project founded in 1981 with the goal of re-establishing "a self-sustaining population of Peregrine Falcons in Manitoba," contacted us and she was positively identified by a distinct marking and the ID bands on her legs.

She made a full recovery from her head injury, but, due to the large amount of time she spent on cage rest and a slight wing injury, we knew her muscles would not be strong enough to make the migration back up to Canada and the project to get her back home began. After months of paperwork, numerous calls to various government agencies and a lot of work, Beatrix is back home! She arrived home in Manitoba on December 1st, 2016 and was handed over to the Peregrine Falcon Recover Project where they plan to release her in the wild when spring comes.
