Over the past several years, through our Bird of Prey Program, you may have met Larry and his wonderful Northern Goshawk, Daisy. Daisy has been a great asset to the Bird of Prey Program. It is with great sadness and hope that we share the announcement from Larry…
“Daisy is back in Dr. Meg Robinson’s breeding project for pure Northern Goshawks. She will be making chicks again this year and her pairing with Ivan produces some of the best Northern birds I have ever seen. I’ve had Daisy for 5 seasons. Sadly this was my last season with her. She is big, beautiful, extremely well-mannered and for a goshawk- downright loveable. I struggled with the decision to transfer her for over a year. My head said keep her but the heart kept saying the transfer was the right thing to do for her. However, she will have more opportunities on more game and a much longer hunting season at her new home after breeding season is over. I will miss her terribly but will continue to follow her progress with intent interest. There are a lot of people to thank for giving me this wonderful opportunity to fly this awesome bird. They know who they are and all I can say to them is thank you, thank you, thank you! Fly well and fly strong big girl and make lots of babies.”
Everyone at Allison Woods Outdoor Learning Center wishes Daisy the best, she will be greatly missed.
