Did you say Goldie? Fargo thinks she died maybe you should let them know
they probably would be excited to know she is still alive ;D  this is so great

Goldie did not return to Fargo in 2002. Peregrine falcons are highly territorial and will almost always return to a site where they have successfully bred. Therefore, it must be assumed that Goldie did not survive her third winter.

The female at the Multi-foods is Gypsy, Goldie's grand-daughter.  As far as I know, we haven't seen Goldie past her single year in Fargo.

Here's the lineage ...

MF-1 at Multifoods Tower, Minneapolis, MN
-- Maud (& Pop) at Radisson Hotel, Winnipeg, MB
---- T-Rex (& Burnsie) at U of Manitoba, Winnipeg, MB
------ Winnie (& Zeus) at Woodmen Towers, Omaha, NB
-------- Goldie (& Dakota Ace) at Community First Bank, Fargo, ND
---------- Copper (& Lewis) at Champion International Paper Mill, Sartell, MN
                     then moved to (now at) St Cloud Correctional Facility, St Cloud, MN
------------ Gypsy (& unidentified male) this year at Multifoods Tower, Minneapolis, MN
                      2008 Lock & Dam 1, Minneapolis - resident female Amelia died
                      2009 Riverside Plaza, Minneapolis - resident female Phoebe died

Wow what a convoluted family tree. It has the makings of a soap opera. Thanks for sorting it  out for us.

2010 NESTING SEASON

Okay, here's a blast from the past plus some new stuff ... this is a note I posted last year (if you want to see more of the conversation, click on the link)

  From the Omaha nestsite = Did you know that before Hera, Zeus was paired with Winnie, and yes, Winnie as in Winnipeg.  She was another kid of T-Rex (Trey's Dad - they are half-sibs) from the University of Manitoba Campus.  Doorly in Topeka is one of their kids.  Hope his mate is one of Amelia's kids and Amelia is a full sib of Madame, Trey's Mom. 

Was doing some more family tree work and here it goes ... Maud our original wild-nesting female is from the Multi-foods Tower in Minneapolis.  Her first nest in 1989 produced T-Rex.  In 1994, T-Rex by Burnsie (his second mate - after Madame in 1991 and before Madame again in 1995) produced Winnie who was paired with Zeus (yes Woodmen Tower Zeus) and they produced a whole whack of chicks in their 4 years together.  Of them a number have or still hold territories: Husker, Tower, Goldie and Doorly.  I'm looking at Goldie right now - she was paired with Dakota Ace for 1 year and she produced Copper, Cash & Fargo.  Copper went on to produce Gypsy (among others) who is kind of notorious, it appears she may have killed a resident female named Amelia in Minneapolis (not Omaha's Amelia), then she appears to have dispatched another Minneapolis resident female (Phoebe) before pairing up with her mate Frisco.  Last fall, Gypsy was spotted at the Multifoods Tower with an as yet unidentified male, perhaps the resident male here.  It should be noted that of the Multifoods Tower female from last year, there is no sign ...

Talk about a circle if she nests there this year - 20 years after Maud nested in Winnipeg, her great-great-great-grand-daughter is the resident female!!
