The Evanston Public Library has some new additions, and it's not in the fiction section.

Four peregrine falcon chicks are now nesting at the library. Their names are Gigi, Dede, Xemxija and Shomigomy.

On Wednesday, workers from the Field Museum banded the chicks and took blood samples for genetic testing. This is the 12th straight year peregrines have nested at the library.

The Field Museum has live camera streams from several nesting locations. To see the webcams, click here.
