There is sad news from city hall.
The famous family of falcons that reside on the ledges of San Jose City Hall have suffered a loss today.
Unita, the only female falcon to be born earlier this year on the 18th floor ledge of City Hall, has died.
She was 40 days old.
"It takes equal measures of luck, skill and strength to survive out there," said Glenn Stewart, a biologist with the UC Santa Cruz Predatory Bird Research Group, who monitors the peregrine falcons born in the Bay Area. "This was purely bad luck."
Unita is survived by her three brothers: Hermes, Shadow and Ahote, and her parents, Clara and Esteban Colbert.
