NEW ALBANY, IN (WAVE) - A few baby birds have a new home in a power plant stack.
Duke Energy and Indiana DNR officials teamed up at Gallagher Station on Thursday to band the baby peregrine falcons.
This year two males, named Wildcat Willy and Gallagher, and two females, named Millennium and Pipsquawk, received tracking numbers.
DNR officials said they use the bands to learn about the birds' history and longevity while keeping track of them. Officials hope the birds will use the nesting box for years to come.
Peregrine falcons can live to be 19 years old and are one of the fastest creatures on earth, having been clocked at more than 200 miles per hour.
