Wildlife officers band City Hall's young peregrine falcons
Peregrine Falcons, a state-endangered bird, are nesting on City Hall Tower for the sixth year in a row.

On Monday, Pennsylvania Game Commission wildlife officers banded the three 21-day-old chicks - two male and one female - in the nest as a way to continue to track the species as it recovers from the brink of extinction.

"Our goal is to re-establish a secure, self-sustaining population of peregrine falcons in Pennsylvania, so that we can take them off the state Endangered Species list, and they will no longer need all the extra measures we are taking on their behalf," said Art McMorris, Peregrine Falcon coordinator for the Pennsylvania Game Commission in a statement.

The birds were documented nesting at City Hall as early as the 1940's, before the population was wiped out in eastern North America by the pesticide, DDT. The species is now recovering, and peregrine falcons have nested at City Hall off and on since the 1990's. Of the 46 known nesting sites, seven are in Philadelphia.

A total of five eggs were laid in the nest - a large clutch. The nest was photographed and the chicks were also given a health check by Game officials. They were treated for blood-sucking flies.
