UMass Lowell Falcons

“A pair of peregrine falcons nesting on the roof of the 18-story Fox Hall at UMass Lowell successfully hatched 2 chicks this spring. On June 2, a team from the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries & Wildlife checked their status & put I.D. bands around their legs. As usual, the chicks’ protective parents took turns swooping down and attacking the team as they retrieved the youngsters from the nest box”. originally posted by umasslowell

As a lover of all animals, thank you for making the effort to air this video.
A very special opportunity to see up close these beautiful and majestic birds of prey.
As a side note though, I hope someone out there invents a new leg band and attachment method. Watching the gent use a pair of common needle-nose pliers to attach the band makes me shift in my chair. I don’t know how many times I have had these slip on me and I cringe to think what could have happened to that beautiful baby had the same occured here. There must be avaliable a proper and safer pliers for just this task.
