Hey, careful with that thing!

Peregrine falcon at Deer Island

Kristin MacDougall posted a photo of one of two peregrine-falcon chicks born on Deer Island recently.

She reports falcons have lived high atop the sewage-treatment plant's "digesters" (the giant egg things) for awhile, but this is the first time any have hatched there.

Fisheries and Wildlife experts banded the two females (named Taylor and Julia) today.
