It was a group effort recently to band a peregrine chick that needed a new neighborhood to grow up in while the Causeway Bridge is undergoing construction. (Above, from left) Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey Project Manager Ben Wurst, WSP bridge design team member Tara Bencivenga, and Tina Shutz with the N.J. Department of Transportation all had a stake in a healthy falcon chick. The 4-week-old female chick is officially known as BD-88, but is unofficially known as Blue Bonnet, or BB for short.
