The banded falcon at Seneca Towers has been given a name by the members of our falcon community. Her name is Luzerne.
A poll was created on the Forum so members could vote for their favorite name, and Luzerne wound up on top with 51% of the votes. Second was Willow with 23%, followed by Celeste (9%), Shaelin (9%), and Takenya (7%).
The name Luzerne was submitted by three individuals: David Sabo of Chili, NY; Linda Schlaffer of Rochester; and Lisa McKeown of Rochester. The three chose the name because Luzerne is the name of the county in Pennsylvania where 67 /AR was hatched in a cliff scrape. It would be appropriate to name her for her birth place, paying respect to her heritage. Congratulations to all three!
Thank you to everyone who submitted a name. Please keep it handy. You may get to submit it again in the very near future.
