Hundreds of feet high over the Hudson River on the Cuomo Bridge, a family of peregrine falcons hatched 4 cute chicks. New Yorkers have a unique opportunity choose names for these kids.

Authorities have installed a special nest box to provide shelter for a pair of endangered peregrine falcons and their offspring.

The peregrine falcon can reach speeds of over 200 mph in a controlled dive, making it the fastest member of the animal kingdom. These birds are able to hunt for prey by diving for it from great heights.

Sapsan means “wanderer.” These falcons migrate long distances. They typically establish a nest in February to raise their young before their fall migration south. Peregrine falcon chicks are called eye-catchers.

The New York family had 4 chicks (2 boys and 2 girls). City residents can vote and choose names for these babies. Vote already open and ends on May 22, 2024 at 17:00 p.m.

In the list of suggested names:

  • Amelia Birdelia,
  • Beakonce
  • Brooklyn
  • Coco Puff
  • Empire
  • Estrella
  • Freedom
  • Jet
  • Millennium Falcon
  • Taylor Swoop
