WoodmenLife Tower’s Four Falcon Hatchlings Have Been Banded; Now They Need Names

WoodmenLife is asking for the public’s help to name the four falcon chicks

Yesterday, May 27, WoodmenLife, with the help of Fontenelle Forest Raptor Recovery, was able to continue its a spring tradition of banding the peregrine falcon hatchlings that call the WoodmenLife Tower home. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this year’s banding was not available to the media or public. However, WoodmenLife premiered the banding on Facebook, where the video is still available. This year, WoodmenLife saw three females and one male.

With the banding comes WoodmenLife’s Falcon Naming Contest, which gives the public a chance to submit names for the four falcons. The winning group of names will be with the peregrines for the rest of their lives. Name submissions for the contest start today, May 28, at 12 p.m. and will close Thursday, June 4, at 12 p.m. Voting for the top five groups of names will begin Monday, June 8, at 12 p.m. and close Friday, June 12, at 12 p.m. All times are Central Time. The winning group of names will be announced on Monday, June 15. Voting can be done through WoodmenLife’s Facebook Page at
