Will Annie recognize and welcome Grinnell back? Or will a new male, one of the falcons that likely attacked Grinnell, become her new mate?
“We are all deeply saddened to report that Grinnell was found dead in downtown Berkeley this afternoon.”
Annie, “queen of the Campanile,” hasn’t ruled out a new life with the rival male peregrine that injured Grinnell, her longtime mate, last month.
What happens next is anyone’s guess. Annie, his longtime mate, is paired up with Grinnell’s attacker and a fight could ensue.
Longtime UC Berkeley peregrine falcon couple Annie and Grinnell appear to have reunited after Annie courted the male falcon who injured her mate.
Just hours after her mate Grinnell’s death on March 31, Annie welcomed a new male falcon to the nest.
Annie, the campus’s longtime female peregrine falcon, hasn’t been seen for more than a week.
Two chicks hatched Saturday and one on Sunday. The fourth egg broke and was unviable. Follow the action live on the webcams.
The peregrine falcons that have made their nest atop Cal’s Campanile for the past three years are back — and they have laid three eggs so far.
