Hello Carleen! Great to hear from you! NO, Ma is just "Ma". Our original pair here were named "Ma and Pa" as we've done at all HWF nests in the past. But when Pa disappeared and a new male came on the scene we had to call him something and it didn't feel right to call him Pa. We did not know what had happened to the previous male or if by some chance he might return. And our new male wasn't a dad yet anyway. So definitely "Pa" would not work for our new male who we called "Trooper".
