UND Tower Grand Forks

Banding Photos

Raptor expert Tim Driscoll and his crew were busy at work Monday, banding new peregrine chicks born on the University of North Dakota water tower, and Grand Forks photographer Russ Hons was there. The chicks, named Chan, Julie and Carl, were carefully placed in a small dog kennel and lowered to the ground for the banding. The parents, Marv and Terminator, were not happy, and let the crowd of 100-plus onlookers know. They circled the tower and the climbers and constantly voiced their displeasure. The banders weighed and measured the chicks and placed a small metal band on their legs for future identification. The crowd was able to get a closeup look at the chicks before they were returned to the nest at the top of the tower. According to Russ, the falcons “fly unbelievably fast and were not easy to get photos of while in flight.” (Check out more photos from Russ Hons here.)

:loveheart: Thankyou for posting the article about the banding here, Carolyn! Was Marv hatched in Fargo? I enjoyed watching the babies up there the year he was hatched. Marv was quite an energetic little guy. Looks like now he is a devoted daddy....

I am looking at the cam for Bremer Tower Bank in Minneapolis/ St Paul. The URL has been changed, and also guess what- as I was looking at the empty nest box, in flew a peregrine! I don't think there is any info recorded about this he resident falcons here, but this falcon is banded...I tried to take some screen shots on my iPad. But haven't looked yet...The falcon is still here on the ledge.
EDIT As you probably know, I do not know how to post a picture. If anyone is interested in the screen shots I got, PM me and I could email them to you...
