SAN JOSE, Calif. (KTVU) - Two baby falcons at San Jose City Hall will be getting some new accessories Tuesday.
A predatory bird expert is putting ID bands on their legs.
The falcon parents have to be kept away while the metal rings are put on the chicks.
The chicks will wear the bands for the rest of their lives, so they can always be identified.
Peregrine falcons generally live on high cliffs in the wild, but they've found highrise buildings make a nice substitute in cities.
They are desirable to have in urban landscapes, since they keep the population of pigeons down.
