a volunteer holds the chick after she fell


As the chicks have gotten older and bigger, they have been venturing farther from the nest box. Soon, they will fledge and leave the box for good.

If you don’t see them right away, please do not call authorities on campus. Most likely, our young falcons are momentarily out of camera range.

We will continue to post updates here as well as on Twitter if something noteworthy happens. A dedicated group of staff and volunteers are monitoring the falcon chicks around the clock and alerting the appropriate authorities when necessary.

Any questions or concerns should be directed to webcontent@uml.edu. Again, please do not call the UMass Lowell Police Department or other emergency services.

Thank you for your cooperation.
