A pair of peregrine falcons circled overhead, screeching, as Jackie Fallon reached an ungloved hand into the nest to scoop out a chick on Monday.
They continued to swoop 30 feet over her head as she tucked four baby falcons, one by one, into a box to be transported from the roof of the Mayo building about 250 feet above the street to a downstairs auditorium.
