State environmental officials participated in the annual banding of the young peregrine falcons born this season on the ledge of the Rachel Carson State Office Building in Harrisburg on May 21. 

Game Commission biologists determined all three fledglings to be females. They were then banded, weighed and examined.  They are all in good health.

Banding allows officials to track the birds' movements as they grow and leave the nest.  Representatives from Zoo America in Hershey also participated in the event bringing a live male adult peregrine falcon, to educate area school children and teachers about adaptation.
