Peregrine Falcons Born in Police Custody

The West Midlands Police caught a man trying to smuggle 14 rare peregrine falcon eggs out of Britain through the Birmingham International Airport. The eggs were reported to the wildlife rescue unit, but until they arrived, they were kept warm on a computer terminal at the airport. But the chicks could not wait -eleven of the eggs hatched before the wildlife unit arrived! The birds will eventually be released in their natural habitat. -via Arbroath
