The Falcon had lead Zane to a tree fortress, which used to be Zane's home. After, Zane found out he was a robot, and then unlocked his true potential.
Its sixth appearance is Episode 10, where the Falcon is now programmed to alert the ninjas if the Serpentine are spotted.

In Blackout Zane sent the Falcon to alert Lloyd and Garmadon as to the continued threat of the Digital Overlord, unaware that he had developed a means of tracking the Falcon, enabling him to locate the exact position of the pair.
Following Zane's reconstruction as the Titanium Ninja, the Falcon underwent a similar process of being rebuilt, with its body now appearing clearly robotic as opposed to resembling a real bird. It can also be compacted into a smaller form that Zane can store within his body until he has need for it.
