Wow - what can I say except that Froona certainly has inspired so many to such heights of beautiful expression ... Ansheideplant's photo - priceless perfection!

There are 134 candles right now from 6 countries - have they reached 365 at any time yet?

Well ... it's about 7 hours since I last looked at the candle site & it is still showing 136 candles lit from 6 countries - so I think that is ...

I was preparing a talk I am giving to a group of 2nd graders and in reviewing old files and pictures, I saw this from the Indy Falcon Blog regarding naming one of the chicks after our beloved Froona. The picture is one I snapped of her right after she was banded and in the hands of my good friend Sylvia. In honor of her birthday...
Happy Birthday Froona

IndyFroona - Female, band is *V/*Y, black over green (the * indicates the letters lay on the side as you look at the band). This name was submitted by Diane Bottum of Lafayette, Indiana. Many falconheads who follow the Indy pair and other nest sites know who this female was named for. As Diane said, "I'd like to name her in honor of the recently deceased falcon lover and blogger extraordinaire from the Netherlands, Froona." Froona was quite remarkable and extremely passionate about falco peregrinus and sharing her love and knowledge about these birds with the world. Even though she lived in the Netherlands, she followed the Ks and reported on them on her website. She passed away in March but her legacy will continue with the probability that there will be many little falcons named Froona all over the world. We liked the idea that our little Froona will have a bit of her own identity and tell everyone where she is from. So IndyFroona, I'm sure you will have many folks rooting for your success and I hope, hope, hope you fly high and touch the clouds - with your pedigree and the good wishes of many folks around the world, we know you are capable of being a true falcon success.

Hurray, Hurray, Boris has been adopted. Before I went on vacation I received a call from people from the south of the country. They were coming to Friesland for their vacation and were very interested in Boris. After my return they came to get him. Let's hope he will do great there.

    Nandi and Floris( Shiamuzi) are enjoying themselves tremendously. We already got some pictures. That leaves Shamira to be adopted. She is doing very well by the way.
