2020 Name the Chicks Contest


We need names for Ella’s and Pip’s two male chicks at the Radisson Hotel in downtown Winnipeg and we need your help!

For those who follow our FalconCam from year to year you will know that we like themes for names when we can find ones that are worthy. This year it was going to be Manitoba’s 150th Birthday but I’m afraid that the COVID-19 Pandemic has pretty much overshadowed every other story and we have mined Manitoba’s historical figures a number of times in the last few years so this year we are going back in time to ancient pandemics. Means we get some interesting names to choose from – or at least you think they are interesting too! The names are listed in chronological order of the event.
