6/6/17: Banding Canceled

Banding of the chicks in the GVSU Eberhard nest box has been canceled because there is no easy access into the nest box.  Any attempt to reach the chicks in the current situation risks panicking them into prematurely leaving the box.   Modifications are planned for later in the year, after the falcons are no longer using the box.

Fledging is not likely to take place until the week of June 18.  I’ll post more about that when we get closer to that time.
