Four baby falcons got banded this morning including Twitter...the name given to one of the chicks by CBC listeners.

Earlier this week we heard about the progress of four falcon chicks that have made their home - along with their mom and dad Freddie and Voltair - on one of the butresses on the Ambassador Bridge.
This morning, representatives from the Canadian Peregrine Foundation and the Ministry of Natural Resources, along with dozens of school kids watched as the chicks were taken from their nest - brought to the ground, weighed, given the once over and then banded before being returned to their nest.
