Four 14 day old peregrine falcon nestlings. Each spring we visit all known falcon nests to check for hatching. At the time we age the young and then inspect them for any parasites and treat them. Then our final visit is to band the young for future tracking. Photo by Ben Wurst

  1. Amazing – their feet look far too big for them, and those little beaks are already looking pretty useful! RH

  2. Great photography idea. I like the light, contrast and composition in your images. Thanks you so much.
