Mary-Fiona’s Story:  Mary-Fiona was captive bred at the Peregrine Fund in 2008.  She was used in free-flight programs.  She was handled and flown by several people.   Her personality requires her to be handled by one falconer.  She is very possessive of her lure and a single, experienced falconer is needed to deal with is this issue.  In 2012 she came to us as her new falconers.  She loves to fly to the lure and stays close to her falconer.  She now flies to the lure for us in our programs.
