UM: Peregrine Falcons

Staff at the University of Michigan document the hatching of peregrine falcons in a nest installed on the University Hospital roof: “The nest box does not have a door in the back, so it is unlikely that the chicks will be banded this year. After they have left, the box will be modified, and a web cam installed, so next year hopefully they will be able to band the chicks. The male is still sometimes using the Bell Tower to eat his prey. Please let us know if you find food remains at the base of the tower, so we can go pick them up (call the Bird Division at 734-764-0457).” [Source]
