Name the Chicks Contest

We need your help to choose names for Ella’s and Pip’s two female chicks and 1 male chick at the Radisson Hotel!

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 we are looking back to a famous event 100 years ago. On November 4th, 1922, English archeologist Howard Carter and his crew discovered the entrance to the Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s tomb in the Valley of the Kings. Falcons, particularly peregrine falcons, were important in ancient Egyptian cosmology The names are listed in alphabetic order. I’ve listed them as male then female in part because they are traditionally listed that way, in part because male chicks almost always fledge before their sisters.

You get to choose 1 male name & 1 female name.
