Names picked for falcon chicks at WPS plant in Rothschild

Posted:
ROTHSCHILD, Wis. (WAOW) -

Students draw inspiration from the sky to name three Peregrine Falcon chicks just born in Marathon County.

The trio recently hatched in a nest at Wisconsin Public Service's plant in Rothschild.

Students from across north central Wisconsin submitted name ideas for the little guys.

The winners:

  • Starlight- submitted by Ford Eberhardy of Riverside Elementary School in Ringle
  • Wisco-Spirit- submitted by Brady Lokken, of the Kidstown USA program in Mosinee 
  • Phoenix- submitted by Sage Mischnick, also of Kidstown USA

Each chick will officially receive its name during a banding event later this month.
