Cuteness Alert: Falcon Chicks Naming Contest

falconsOne Pergrine falcon caught me spying on the nest today. What did I do? I went back to look at a later time.

Three chicks (eyases) were born in April, and project officials are having a Name-the-Falcons poll now through May 27 at 6 p.m. Names that draw the most votes will be announced next month, and schools that suggested them will be recognized.

falcons1The two females and one male were recently tagged with identifying bands by the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) so project officials and the DEC can identify them and track their health and migration habits.

If you miss them during the day, then check the FalconCam archives, which show the nest at hour intervals.

Rockland and Westchester elementary school students put on their thinking caps to come up with 10 names. I’ve made my three choices. Have you?

I’d like to know what you think.
