The Michigan Department of Natural Resources, in cooperation with Consumers Energy, has just complete their banding project of the newest Peregrine Falcons in Michigan.

Nik Kalejs, wildlife biologist for the DNR, was assisted in the banding by Laurie Larsen, Lakeshore public affairs area manager and Rick Dupuis, environmental coordinator for the B.C. Cobb Plant (both Consumers Energy employees)

The banding took place this past Monday afternoon, June 3, 200 feet above the ground on the BCCobb Plant’s stack on a platform ring. They have now banded 35 peregrine chicks since 2005 and have documented 41 chicks hatched at this site since 2003.

Nik Kalejs from the DNR called the Cobb site “one of the most productive nests in the state” since the peregrine falcon work began in the late 1990s.
