Glen has dramatic video of a peregrine falcon mother saving her baby from falling from Great Spirit Bluff on the Mississippi River near LaCrosse.

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.
