It's not easy getting to the chicks.
But once Raptor Recovery Nebraska and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission staff got them into the box, they were moved to another room to determine their gender and to band their legs.
Here is one of the chicks getting an examination.
We have three females and one male chick to name. Got any good name ideas? Woodmen of the World Life Insurance Society is hosting its annual falcon-naming contest entirely on Woodmen’s Facebook Fan page, WOWInsurance under the “Name the Falcons” contest tab. To find the Woodmen of the World Facebook page and to find out more information, search “Woodmen of the World Life Insurance Society.” Woodmen of the World can also be found on Twitter at “@WOWInsurance.”
And once the chicks were put back into the box, we received a good scolding from Hera. It was a long day for us all.
