Descriptions:

Andromeda in Greek mythology is a princess renowned for her beauty and rescued from a sea monster by Perseus.

Artemis is the Goddess of light and a Huntress. She is independent, beautiful and wild. She teaches leadership and focus. Artemis blesses you with strength, courage and help reaching goals.

Diana is a mythical goddess of the hunt.

Hope as in hope for the future of Peregrine falcons and all endangered or protected species.

Merriam for Florence Merriam, one of the first widely-known female ornithologists in American history. She was a pioneer in the field as she began studying bird behavior as opposed to physical appearance. Also a founding member of the Audubon society in DC.

Moira is from Greek Mythology. She was one of the Greek goddesses of destiny.

Monica is the given name of Monica Turner, the first woman in Britain to earn a doctorate in ornithology (1952). She was a field biologist, back when that was an overwhelmingly male profession. Obituary: http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2013/nov/19/monica-turner-obituary

Reina is Spanish for "Queen." The Peregrine is the Queen of the Skies.

Sophie is in honor of Glenn Stewart's falcon, Sophie.  She was a fantastic educator bird.  Glenn and Sophie appeared to have a special bond.

Taka means tall, honorable, a falcon!

Zosime is Greek meaning "likely to survive; survivor."

Three polls have been posted (male name, female name, gender-neutral name). The voting period ends Monday night at 11:59 PM EDT.

One of this year's eyases will be given either an appropriate gender-specific name or a gender-neutral name, whichever receives the most votes. In case of a tie, the number of times each of the 2 names was submitted will be used as a tie breaker. If that is a tie too, a coin will be flipped.
