Descriptions:

Beamer represents the Falcon being able to see the light from far away and in storms.

Bubbles because watching the babies hatch is such a joy, like bubbles are to kids.

Camryn is sweet, kind, misty!

Cirrus is one of the types of clouds, it is wispy, feathery, and composed entirely of ice crystals. They often are the first sign of an approaching warm front or upper-level jet streak.

Denali is the highest peak in North America at 20,310 ft.  Since peregrine falcons are known for their ability to fly high and true, Denali seems a fitting name.

Doppler is for Doppler Radar that is used to forecast weather in Rochester.

Excelsior is the motto of New York State meaning higher.

Progress is for the progress made worldwide so far in bringing peregrine falcons back from near extinction, and for the "Wings of Progress" sculpture atop the Times Square Building, where all of our downtown Rochester falcons have been born since 2010. 

Sachem is a Native American word meaning supreme ruler of a specific territory.

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.
