Richmond Falcon Cam

Falcon Banded

  • May 25th, 2011

DWR biologists banded the falcon chick on the Riverfront Plaza building in Richmond this morning.  The chick appeared to be healthy and was fitted with two bands.  The first is a green anodized aluminum band with a unique numeric code.  The second (or auxiliary band) was was a green and black band with the banding code 00/AV.  Our hope is that these bands will provide future data about where this bird travels and hopefully establishes a breeding territory of its own someday.The young female peregrine falcon chick that was banded
