- Harrisburg, PA
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the Pennsylvania Game Commission banded Harrisburg's newest peregrine falcons today. A recording of the banding is available on DEP's Facebook page www.facebook.com/PennsylvaniaDEP/"The falcons that have nested on the Rachel Carson State Office Building continue to be an environmental success story," said DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell. "Without the improvements to Pennsylvania's environment, these birds would not have the track record that they do here on the Rachel Carson Building." Game Commission biologist Patti Barber led a team in bringing the nestlings in from the 15th floor ledge. Barber weighed the birds, inspected their health, and banded them.
