Banding Martins Creek’s peregrine falcons

Peregrine falcon chicksYesterday, we banded three peregrine chicks at PPL’s Martins Creek power plant.  Banding is important to help keep track of the falcon’s population and migration patterns.  I’ve been able to attend three different banding events and it never gets old. The Express-Times has amazing photos and a nice video interview of Art McMorris of the Pennsylvania Game Commission on it’s web site.
