PEREGRINE FALCON


June 6, 2005:  One of the young males sitting inside the weighing tub, registering 645 grams on the scale below.  Partly visible at bottom right is the leg gauge which we use to verify the size of their legs, both to ensure a safe and comfortable fit of the bands, and to confirm the sex - females generally take a larger band than males.  (Photo by Marcel Gahbauer)
