Help name the Cal Falcon eyases!

27 May 2022

The two eyases at the University of California-Berkeley were banded today. Annie and Alden both did fly bys while the humans were with the two chicks. The oldest is a female and the youngest and loudest is a little boy. Poor thing he looked terrified to me. I am sure that that pose he took will make it into some falcon literature.

You have to be quick with the naming. Suggestions will only be taken until 6pm or 1800 on Monday the 30th of May (Memorial Day in the US). The time is Pacific time as a deadline. The finalists will be announced on May 31 and the public can then vote for two names. Winning names will be announced on 3 June.

Here is an article showing the banding, the action today, and information on where to go for the naming contest. Please take part!

    The photo of the male eyas is just crying for a caption.
    “You’ll be sorry when my folks hear about this!”
    “And quit picking on my sister, too!”

    1. Oh, you should send those to Sean and Lynne. That image of the little male clinging to the back wall is priceless!!!!!!
