Laurel Hill Banded Peregrine is from Atlantic City


Earlier this week, Richard Brown wrote to the blog about a pair of falcons at Laurel Hill Park in Secaucus.

One of the falcons then perched on a ball field light and I got some photos.He was able to read the band on its leg:  Black 23 / Green AN.

We asked if anyone could provide more info. Peregrine whiz Mike Girone responded immediately:

That is Laurel Hill’s resident female. She was banded as a nestling by Kathy Clark at the Atlantic City Hilton in 2012.

Greg Gard passed along the information to us as well.

(Thanks, Mike, Greg and Richard!)
