Richmond Falcon Cam

Banding results

  • May 18th, 2012

Yesterday, the three Richmond peregrine falcon chicks were banded by biologists with the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources.  All three chicks were examined and appear to be in excellent health.  As expected both adults vigorously defended the nesting ledge.

Measurements indicated that we have two female and one male chick this year.
