Peregrine Falcon Conway 1

“Conway”

Peregrine Falcon 
Falco peregrinus

In 2006, Conway caused quite a stir when she was brought to VINS: she was wearing a band! The identification number revealed that she hatched in 2000 in North Conway, NH, about 70 miles from VINS. Unfortunately, she had sustained a severe injury to her left wing, following a collision with an unknown object. The wing was so badly damaged that it had to be amputated midway between her wrist and elbow, making flight impossible.
For several years, Conway was a glove-trained education bird featured in VINS’ programs. She enjoyed a good bath with a spray bottle, and she often shook out her feathers, much to the delight of our visitors. In 2013, Conway retired from educational programs, and she has enjoyed the life on exhibit ever since. Conway enjoys sitting in the front of her enclosure meeting her visitors eye-to-eye.
