Peregrine falcon rescues her falling baby

Glen Loyd has dramatic video of a peregrine falcon mother saving her baby falling from Great Spirit Bluff on the Mississippi River near La Crosse, WI
The baby is believed to be fleeing black flies which suffocated two other siblings by clogging their airways.
Another sibling fell or jumped out of the nest but was recovered.
A Raptor Resource  climbing team cleans out the out the nest, applies insecticide and returns the two surviving siblings
