Peregrine Falcons Get New Home Atop Verrazano Bridge

By: NY1 News

 

Two Peregrine Falcon chicks now have a great view of New York Harbor.

 

The Department Of Environmental Protection, along with Metropolitan Transportation Authority Bridges And Tunnels placed the chicks in a nest atop the Brooklyn tower of the Verrazano Bridge.

 

This after wildlife officials determined the chicks' original home was not a safe environment.

 

The MTA says the [peregrine] falcons already in the nest quickly took to the new arrivals and adopted them.

 

Environmental officials say there are at least fifteen pairs of peregrine falcons in the city.
