Wildlife officials to band falcon chicks May 27

Naturalists from the Ohio Department of Natural Resource’s Division of Wildlife are scheduled to band the 2014 UT peregrine falcon chicks at 10 a.m. Tuesday, May 27.

The free, public event will take place outside the Student Union where tables will be set up. Rain or high winds could postpone the event.

Ohio wildlife crews will bring the baby birds down from their top-of-the-tower nest and give each one a leg identification band so that it can be tracked after it migrates from its birthplace. Blood also will be drawn from the chicks and they’re weighed to help determine their overall health.

Allen and Belle, residents of University Hall tower since 2007, became parents of two chicks May 8. This is the eighth successful brood for the adult peregrines.

Follow the family on the Toledo Peregrine Project Facebook page and watch the live stream from the UT Fal-Cam.
