Banding the 2021 Richmond Peregrines Video

  • June 14th, 2021

If you didn’t get the chance to tune-in on Facebook last week. Then don’t forget to check out our recently produced video from falcon banding day! This video gives viewers an opportunity to learn more about the history of peregrine falcons in Virginia. It also can teach you about DWR’s peregrine falcon conservation work and our commitment to the species recovery. The video explains the background of the current Richmond breeding pair, why biologists band the chicks, and the purpose of the pen that contains the chicks until they’re ready to fledge!
