Fargo, ND(WDAY TV)-- A special day, and a special honor today, atop the Bank of the West Building in Downtown Fargo.

The 4 peregrin falcons were banded and named. 1 male was named Marv, after our friend and mentor Marv Bossart.

The 3 females are named Discovery, after astronaut Karen Nyberg, Aurora, to honor the victims of the movie theater shooting in Colorado, and Boston, after the bombing victims of the Boston marathon.

Marshal Johnson- Audubon Society: "Peregrin falcon recovery project is really a testament to local communityies coming together and making a difference for birds and the environment."

The names came from a facebook naming contest.
