Falcon Cam - June 4 2009The three peregrine falcon chicks who have been nesting on a ledge at the Radisson Hotel are now soaring the skies above Winnipeg.

The first chick took flight early Saturday, followed by the second, with the third leaving the nest on Tuesday afternoon.

A web cam of the falcons has been up for several months now and has garnished views from all over the world. Nearly 2 million page views of the Falcon Cam have been delivered to CBC’s website since the camera went live on May 18.

You can help name the chicks until midnight tonight by casting your vote.
