I think we can consider  star  Ranger star and  star Hunter star a super couple as they have stayed together despite not reproducing.  clap clap

Ranger's parents are M&K, so I'm not surprised....

!!! Sad news to report to end 2013. Ranger from Rochester NY has been recovered dead!
January 02, 2014 - Toronto - Mount Sinai Hospital

CPF Postmaster Reports:

December 27th - 2013
It is with sad news that we must report about news received this afternoon - (Jan 2nd 2014) that a deceased adult female peregrine was recovered from the downtown city streets of Toronto. We have been able to identify the peregrine as being one of our long standing resident territorial adults,, named Ranger, a peregrine produced in 2001 at the Kodak nest site in Rochester New York, USA.

Both Ranger and her mate (named Hunter,,, a 2000 year produced peregrine from Ohio USA) has been nesting here in Toronto at several different nest locations for almost 12 years. Both peregrines have been closely monitored by the Canadian Peregrine Foundation staff and volunteers for a very long time indeed and have been part of Toronto’s landscape.

Sadly, Ranger and Hunter were never successful in hatching any of their eggs year after year despite all of their dedicated efforts. It certainly was not from the lack of trying, as the pair remained fateful to one another since their arrival almost 12 years ago! They produced several clutches of eggs every year, (some years, they produced three clutches of eggs),,, and underwent continuous prolonged incubation periods on every clutch of eggs!! The pair spent some 50 days of prolonged incubation on several of the clutches and refused to give up incubating until the eggs finally imploded.

Ranger and Hunter spent time at the old up-town Toronto nest site, - (the Canadian Tire building at Yonge & Eglinton),,, at the Four Seasons Hotel nest site at Bay Street & Yonge Street,,, and their final nest territorial nest site in downtown Toronto at the Mt Sinai Hospital nest site.

We received communication from Mark Heaton from Ontario’s Ministry of Natural Resources today - (Jan. 2nd - 2014) that a deceased peregrine was picked up from the streets on Dec. 27th 2013. Photos were forwarded along to us clearly showing the Black A over Red 0 leg band numbers.

One of the photos shows evidence of a wrist injury on her left wing, but as of this date, we have no details of the cause of her death. Despite the minor injury to her wrist, Ranger appears to be in very good condition and very good weight.
You are advised that some of the images may be disturbing to look at.
Stay tuned…..

  Rest in Peace sweet Ranger!  So so sad!  sorrow kleenex

Ranger was one heck of a determined Peregrine to have babies-a STAR in my book.  star

Here's how I remember her.  What a bird!

No offspring, but still a falcon to be reckoned with.  Imagine looking out your office window to find this scene:
