The peregrine falcons that have made the Milton-Madison Bridge their home over the years have a new nest. A new falcon box has been put in place on the underside of the new bridge over the water.
Since 2002, falcons have been known to make the bridge their nesting spot. When the new Milton-Madison Bridge work began, the project took measures to protect these birds of prey. As construction progressed, the falcon box was located on old pier #5 – the only pier that was not being re-used. Two weeks ago, the old pier was demolished.
