Life in the nest

UB's falcon chicks — three females and one male — are almost grown, and biologists from the state Department of Environmental Conservation visited the nesting box in Mackay Heating Tower last week to band the chicks. Banding allows wildlife biologists to track the movements and lifespans of the endangered birds. Photos courtesy of Ken Nusstein and the UB Falcon Cam.
