On Monday, we photographed a young banded Peregrine Carlstadt, and set out to find more about it. Christopher A. Nadareski, Section Chief, NYC Environmental Protection, writes:
If it is a 68/AX then it is the HY [hatch year] male from the Bayonne Bridge nest tower. It was one of two young hatched around May 8, 2013, and I banded on May 29, 2013.
The HY male had a slight case of Frounce, which I treated orally at the nest site. Would like to believe the male survived the Frounce.
Thanks, Chris (with an assist from Kathy Clark of the NJDEP)!
We photographed one of Chris’ banded Peregrines last summer — banded on the MetLife Building in Manhattan. Link is here.
