We received 290 entries, stretching from Maine to Oregon, for the Peregrine Falcon “name-the-chicks” contest. From this group, a select committee chose the top six finalists. It is now time to vote for your one favorite. You can do so, below.
Meadowlark, Goldenrod and Cottonwood were suggested because they are the state bird, flower and tree, respectively. Brando, Carson, and Fonda are famous Nebraska entertainers Marlon Brando, Johnny Carson, and Henry Fonda. Disco, Rock and Jazz are ” cool and Lincoln has a rad music scene”. Arthur, Lancelot, and Guinevere are ” a timeless trio of names”. Zephyr, Breeze and Gale was offered because “these chicks were meant to ride the wind!”. Finally, Cody, Bill and Annie are “The cowboys and cowgirls of Nebraska”.
Voting will end on 2 July and the winner will be announced on 3 July.
