And the winning names are...!

The votes are in (over 3,000 of them!) and this year's Columbus falcon chicks will be named:

Thanks to the students of Scottish Corners Elementary School for participating in the contest and thanks to everyone for voting.
The chicks are nearing their 3rd week birthday and continue to grow! They are becoming more mobile and one even ventured just outside/in front of the nestbox. There is a several inch step (~10") up onto the actual ledge so even if they go for a stroll there is no danger of them falling off of the building. At this stage they are still too small to get up the step that leads to the edge.
