MICHAEL BOGERT: Photo Gallery — Peregrine On A Perch

Peregrine falcons have been showing up in Grand Forks since 2005. This is one of the falcons that is nesting in the water tower on the campus of the University of North Dakota. It could be Marv, the patriarch of Grand Forks’ peregrine clan the past couple of years. Named after Marv Bossart, a Fargo TV personality who died in 2013, Marv was hatched that same year in Fargo and showed up in Grand Forks to mate the next spring. Its identity was confirmed by Tim Driscoll, Grand Forks raptor expert and licensed bander, who banded and named Marv in 2013. Photographer Michael Bogert captured these nice images recently on the UND campus.
