Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
A Rare Bird Found Dead In Canton
A peregrine falcon, a species classified as threatened in Ohio, has been found dead in downtown Canton.
State wildlife official Damon Greer tells The Repository the carcass discovered along a street on Wednesday may be that of a bird that fathered falcon chicks in the city for nearly a decade.
The falcon was known as Maverick in the Ohio Department of Natural Resources database.
Greer says peregrine falcons usually die when they’re killed by one of their own. He says Maverick was growing old, so it was time for the bird to be “replaced” by another mating male.
The falcons may live up to 15 years.
