MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) — A rare breeding falcon is nesting again this year at an Upper Peninsula power plant.
WLUC-TV (http://bit.ly/OdCzfV) says the peregrine falcon nested and hatched two male chicks at the We Energies Presque Isle power plant in Marquette.
This is the second year that the same mother has laid her eggs at the nest.
The station says employees and their families were given a chance to see the baby falcons up close as they were banded. Children came up with names for the chicks, which were chosen at random out of a hat. The names are Felco and Superman.
Peregrine falcons are endangered, and biologists will use the bands to track their locations over their lifetime.
