Peregrine chicks hatching atop U.P. bridges draw wide attention

Two landmark U.P. bridges are home to peregrine falcon nesting pairs, and reported successful hatchings for the endangered species this spring, on the Sault Ste. Marie International Bridge and the Lift Bridge in the Keweenaw.
 
Excerpt: Three peregrine falcon chicks have hatched atop the Houghton-Hancock Lift Bridge in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
 
The state Department of Transportation installed nest boxes on the north and south bridge towers in 2012 and a pair of peregrine falcons showed up the next spring.
