B&T_3380

Seven new peregrine falcon chicks are living in their parents’ nesting boxes high atop three MTA bridges. The new chicks include four newly hatched peregrines at Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges Memorial, two at Throgs Neck and one at the Verrazano-Narrows. They hatched in early May and were recently banded by wildlife specialist Chris Nadareski, of the New York City Department of Environmental Protection’s Wildlife Studies division.
