COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- The U.S. Air Force Academy announced Tuesday morning that it's welcoming a new falcon mascot.
The new mascot is a female gyrfalcon but has yet to be named. The Cadet Wing will vote on a name later this year, according to a tweet by USAFA.
The academy's previous 23-year-old mascot Aurora passed away in October 2019. Aurora was the long longest-serving live mascot in the school’s history.
