The falcon chick was banded on the morning of June 13. The chick is a male, and his band number is 90 Black over BS Green. 

A new falcon season is underway! The mated pair from last year has returned to the nesting box. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for up-to-date news.

Peregrine Falcons have successfully nested on the roof of the W.E.B. Du Bois Library at UMass Amherst for the past 13 years. A live webcam was installed in 2013 thanks to the UMass Amherst Facilities Planning Division, UMass Amherst Information Technology, the Libraries' Systems and Web Management Department, the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (MassWildlife), and the Friends of the Libraries.
