TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - State wildlife naturalists are planning to band falcon chicks at the University of Toledo this week.

Crews from the Ohio Department of Natural Resource’s Division of Wildlife are planning on Tuesday to bring the baby birds out of their nest atop University Hall on the Toledo campus.

Each chick will get a leg identification band so that it can be tracked after it leaves its nest.

Two peregrine falcons have made the campus building home since 2007. They’ve had eight successful broods since then. Their latest chicks were born May 8.
