Mary Sue meets Mary

President Mary Sue Coleman met one of her namesake falcons Tuesday morning. The fledgling peregrine falcon, Mary, which hatched recently in a nesting box atop University Hospital, fell from its nest and underwent rehabilitation by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Coleman had the chance to see the bird up-close before it was released back to its nest. Mary, held by DNR volunteer Dave Hogan, along with siblings, Sue and Coleman, were named to honor U-M's 13th president, who retires this month. (Photo by Austin Thomason, Michigan Photography)
