Maxine

July 13, 2000

Maxine, one of Mariah and Cabot-Sirocco's 1999 offspring, continues to recover after being struck by a car near St. Catherine's, Ontario, Canada. She is being cared for by the famous Owl Lady of Canada, Kay McKeever. One of the Millennium brood, McKeever, was named after Kay and her husband, Larry, who are active participants in the peregrine falcon program.

Maxine's recovery from a fractured wing is going well. She is expected to be released, with a GPS (Global Positioning System) transmitter, like Mary Ann's, in August. Stay tuned for more details!

Research reveals a happy coincidence in the Rochester peregrine family tree: Ponce-Kingsley—Cabot-Sirocco’s father and Maxine’s grandfather—was released in Akron, OH on July 1, 1992 and injured near Windsor, Ontario, in November 1992. In late January 1993, Ponce-Kingsley was transferred to The Owl Foundation for rehabilitation and release.

In caring for Maxine and her grandfather, the McKeevers have been instrumental to the survival of the Rochester peregrine family.
