Peregrine falcon chicks

W&M and VCU Biologists Libby Mojica and Jake McClain are banding two peregrine falcon chicks that were nesting on the James River Bridge's north tower. They will be taken to the Shenandoah National Park where they will safely grow for 2-3 weeks and will be released after they start flying.  Libby Mojica-Research Biologist  quickly picks up the two chicks from the box nest before the mother Peregrine Falcon drives on her at the top of the James River Bridge north tower.
