Every May, Norman Smith, Director of Mass Audubon’s Blue Hills Trailside Museum, and Tom French, Director of Mass Wildlife’s Natural Heritage and Endangered Species program, band peregrine falcon chicks in Boston. You can learn more about why we band falcons here.

    I saw a peregrine resting on a wire at Ocean Bluff Marshfield this morning she had a green band on left leg. Where was she banded?
