2012 - Kinderchicklets / How old is Princess?
« on: May 17, 2012, 21:52 »
This question came in via email and they said I could share it with everyone here on The Classroom.

My class and I have been spending a lot of time watching Princess and her adorable chicks on the Falcon Cam.  One of the students asked me if I knew how old Princess is and I said I would try to find out so there is my question - how old is Princess?

Glad your students are enjoying the Falcon Cams. 

Princess hatched in 2002 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  She turned up in Winnipeg in the spring of 2004 and paired up with the resident male, Trey.  Trey was hatched in 1996 at the Radisson and he had been coming back to Winnipeg every year since he hatched.  Princess was his second mate, his first mate was Madame.  Trey and Princess were together until 2010 when Trey didn't come back in the spring at which point, Princess paired up with Ivy.  So Princess is 10 years old as of this year.  Over the years, Princess has laid 36 eggs at the Radisson of which 32 have hatched.
