FALCON NEST
4 peregrine falcon chicks hatch at Milton-Madison Bridge across Ohio River

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, April 25, 2014 4:01 AM EDT
MILTON, Ky.


Kentucky and Indiana transportation officials say a falcon box under the new Milton-Madison Bridge has some additional inhabitants — four peregrine falcon chicks that hatched this week.

The eggs were laid sometime in mid-March. The falcon box was placed underneath the new steel truss and wasn't disturbed as the truss was slid into place earlier this month.

Officials say the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources will band the chicks next month so they can be identified. The chicks will also be tested for diseases.

Falcons have nested at the bridge since 2002.

In Jefferson County, at LG&E's Mill Creek Generating Station peregrine falcon nest box, the utility says Fish and Wildlife Resources reports two hatchlings didn't survive after a new adult falcon became involved in a territorial conflict.
