Subject: [MASSBIRD] 2017 Peregrine Nesting/Banding update
For those with an interest, a summary on the 2017 Peregrine Falcon nesting and banding season results:

42 total pairs likely nested, but 10 pairs were not monitored closely enough to know their outcome. At least 32 pairs laid eggs, of which 8 pairs failed, and 24 successful pairs fledged at least 53 chicks. A total of 40 chicks were banded from 15 nests. One chick was found injured after fledging and is still being treated at the Tufts Wildlife Clinic.
