A pair of peregrine falcons that have made the I-95 Scudder Falls Bridge their home have become parents again.
The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission, which operates the span between Bucks County and Mercer County, says Pennsylvania Game Commission ornithologists visited the site last week and found two female nestlings.
The two juvenile raptors were pronounced to be in "robust health," the commission said.
"A total of nine falcon hatchlings have been recorded at the bridge over the past four years," Frank G. McCartney, the commission's executive director, said in a statement.
The ornithologists reported that the nestlings were already at adult weight and should be able to begin flying in mid-June.
