  • An angry peregrine falcon chick being held by Bob Ford bites the finger of Jennifer Norris, a wildlife research biologist, as Ohio Department of Natural Resources personnel band the birds at the University of Toledo's Student Union.


    One of the chicks' agitated parents circles overhead.












    ODNR naturalists try to protect themselves as the irate adult birds swoop in to attack them. Four chicks in all were banded Monday at UT.
