DGIF biologists banded the falcon chick on the Riverfront Plaza building in Richmond this morning. The chick appeared to be healthy and was fitted with two bands. The first is a green anodized aluminum band with a unique numeric code. The second (or auxiliary band) was was a green and black band with the banding code 00/AV. Our hope is that these bands will provide future data about where this bird travels and hopefully establishes a breeding territory of its own someday.
The chick’s information is below:
Band #: 1807-65039
Aux Band: Black over Green 00/AV
Weight: 884.0 grams
