"Regal is a good word for her," said Kim Dudek about falcon Camira, the mascot of the Swords and Sabres Pirate Renaissance Fair in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Alexandra Paul of the Winnipeg Free Press has the story. (photo)

The daylong event, which drew 5,000 to 6,000 people, took place at Coronation Park. In modern life, Camira, who is missing a wing, lives at the Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre.
