This past Mother's Day weekend was a memorable one for falcon family. 

Officials say that four peregrine falcon chicks hatched atop the WoodmenLife Tower in Downtown Omaha over the weekend.

Right now, the FalconCam is giving bird watchers a bird's eye view from the 28th floor of the Downtown Omaha building. 

 

Officials say this is the 28th year that the falcons have chosen  to lay their eggs in the building.

Nebraska Game & Parks Commission officials will remove the chicks from their nest in June, to place identification bands around their legs and determine their gender.

WoodMenLife officials said that once genders are determined, they will be holding the annual “Name the Falcon” contest on their Facebook page.
