Peregrine falcon chick banding

Mama falcon gives the invaders a piece of her mind as her four chicks are collected to put the ID bands around their legs.

 

Urban peregrines like to nest on high rise buildings and under bridges, like the I-5 Ship Canal Bridge for this pair. The nest site mimics their natural habitat of high cliffs.
