GREEN BAY - Four Peregrine Falcons which have yet to hatch in Green Bay already have names.
Wisconsin Public Service announced the winning names Thursday for the "Name the Chick" contest.
Currently, there are four eggs and a mother keeping watch at the WPS Pulliam Power Plant in Green Bay.
The winning chick names are:
- "Boston" named by Emily Dehn, 2nd grader at Dickinson Elementary De Pere, in honor of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.
- "Zippin" named by Grant Strencki, 5th grader at Lannoye Elementary Pulaski, after the Zippin Pippin Roller Coaster ride at Bay Beach.
- "Journey" named by Raelyn Mader, 1st grader at Our Lady of Lourdes, De Pere, because of the necessary falcon travels to raise a family.
- "Honor" named by Arionna Blazek, 8th grader at Red Smith School, Green Bay in honor of our military troops.
Four other chicks, also still waiting to hatch, were named at the Weston Power Plant near Wausau. Those falcons will be called Skydancer, P.J., Lacey, and Snow.
The winners at both sites will be invited to participate in the banding of the chicks scheduled in late May.
