The single peregrine falcon chick hatched this summer in Grand Forks will be banded at 1 p.m. Friday below the UND water tower next to Starcher Hall, 10 Cornell St., and the public is welcome to attend.

According to Tim Driscoll, a licensed bander and director of the Urban Raptor Research Project, climbers will make the ascent to retrieve the peregrine chick at 1 p.m. and lower it to the ground.

“Once on the ground, we will band the baby, take a few measurements and name it before returning it to the nest box on the water tower,” Driscoll said in an email.

For more information about Friday’s banding event, contact Driscoll at (701) 772-1222.
