**CORRECTS AGE OF GUN TURRET TO WORLD WAR II GUN TURRET, NOT WORLD WAR I** In this undated photograph provided by the Metropolitan Transit Authority, a female peregrine falcon flaps her wings to protect her three chicks, born in late April or early May, as she reacts to a photographer who snapped a family portrait atop the Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges Memorial Bridge in New York. The birds are among three new sets of nine peregrine falcon chicks recently hatched atop MTA bridges, including the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, the Throgs Neck Bridge, and the Marine Parkway Bridge. The three pictured here were born inside a World War II gun turret 215-feet up on the Rockaway Tower of the bridge. less
