Peregrine falcon pair raising two chicks

By Kevin Kilbane,

The peregrine falcon nest box atop the Indiana Michigan Power Center in downtown Fort Wayne now is a family home.

Parent birds believed to be Moxie and Jamie now are caring for two chicks, said John Castrale, a retired longtime nongame bird biologist with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Fish and Wildlife who continues to assist with the falcon program around the state.
