Mason Bell, who will be three in June, is the first volunteer to help the wildlife officials to band the chicks. Bell, of Perrysburg, is helping Jennifer Norris, wildlife biologist and the peregrine falcon coordinator for the state, and Bob Ford, acting wildlife management supervisor, right and holding chick, to fasten the band on the bird.

Division of Wildlife biologists band two peregrine falcon chicks in Bowling Green, Ohio at the Wood County Courthouse atrium on May 16, 2013. The chicks, about 21 days old, believed to be females, are banded as part of a monitoring of the long-term survivorship of the peregrine in Ohio.

Falcons have nested in the clock tower of the old portion of the Wood County Courthouse since 2011, says Bob Ford, acting Wildlife Management supervisor for the ODNR.
