Meet Irvwing, Winning Name in Falcon Contest

You were in suspense like I was, right? One recently-hatched chick (eyase), a naming contest, results are in . . . and we were told to wait. What fun is that?

It wasn’t a long wait, though, because days later we learned Irvwing the baby chick can thank Washington Irving Intermediate School 5th graders for its name.

The chick will most likely be banded as were its siblings, and when fully grown can fly at up to 200 mph. Photos courtesy of New York State Thruway Authority.

Congratulations to the two-time winners!

I’d like to know what you think.
