Dave Lambeth of Grand Forks took this photo of Marv (bottom), a male peregrine that first showed up in Grand Forks in 2014, and an unidentified female this week at the UND water tower. Lambeth and local raptor expert Tim Driscoll identified Marv by the bird's black and red leg band. The female also is banded, but Lambeth wasn't able get a clear photo of the band due to cloudy conditions. The female isn't Terminator, a peregrine that has nested in Grand Forks since 2008.
