San Francisco's peregrine baby falcons banded, named

Look up in the sky above San Francisco and you may see birds that almost went extinct.

Two peregrine falcons recently hatched three peregrine falcon chicks atop of PG&E's San Francisco headquarters last month.

The baby birds were named Talon, Grace and Flash from entries submitted to PG&E.

Researcher also banded the young birds. Banding allows researchers to track this species which once was near extinction.
