Baby falcons hatched on Throgs Neck Bridge
From CBS New York:
A dozen new peregrine falcon chicks have been born atop the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, the Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges Memorial Bridge and the Throgs Neck Bridge, the agency said.
The falcons remain on the New York State’s endangered birds list.
The MTA has participated in the state’s nesting program since 1983, providing a nesting box atop the bridges, the agency said.
