The oldest known falcon in Marlborough, Maggie is a successful breeding falcon. Two years ago, with Aston, she raised three chicks who all successfully fledged. That winter, Aston disappeared, but Maggie was able to find another mate and last year she raised another 3 chicks. Amazingly, even though she nested somewhere off of the vineyard, she led last year’s chicks back to Richard and he was able to provide both Maggie and the chicks with supplementary food over the lean winter months. Two of the female chicks remained for most of the winter, with one being dubbed ‘the noisy one’ and one ‘the quiet one’. The noisy one had a habit of whining for food, even when she was perched atop a wind machine with a piece of food clutched in her talons. Maggie has been looked after by her caretaker Richard for almost eight years!
