We're going to need some name suggestions. They need to be unisex ones I guess. These hawks stay around for a while and Momma Hawk is no longer "the girl" from summer's past.

Please give me some suggestions, while I grab the binoculars! My husband will be so excited.

Smoky and the Bandit?

You should run a contest to see who comes up with the best names.

That is such a great idea, it's a shame it will have to wait. I'm still an Editor Trainee, but I will double check on it.

In the interim, I'll keep a list of all suggestions.

I have had that experience too, the swooping of the hawk.

Maybe everyone does, but my ex made the comment, "Everytime I drive with you there's either one above us or keeping pace along side of the car.

I thought you might have more than one baby up there. I'll bet the more you watch them, their personlities will come to surface and their names will come to you. Like "Runs with hidden talon..." or "Keeper of nest all to self"

Two more name suggestions:

first born
Balin
(Cherokee for Mighty Warrior, because he was born during the fires, braved the smoke, and survived)

second born
Dayita
(Cherokee for Beloved, because he was such a welcome surprise)

Here is a site for Cherokee names and meanings:

Name suggestions are coming in from all four directions! Phyllis, I really like the ones you just posted, but it won't be up to me.

Let's get a few more suggestions and then we'll do a poll.

This is exciting! I wonder how many names those babies will get from all the people who are watching for news on them.

From my limited vocabulary of the Lakota language:

Cante waste nape ciyuzapo. (I greet you from my heart) Cokata hiyupo apetu iyohila. (Come to the center daily). And catch up on the news of the little chay-dahns (Hawks).

Went out for this afternoon's nest watch. The first chick we saw stays on the Southern side of the nest. The second chick stays on the North and the reason we didn't see it immediately.

So until the official naming poll results, they are temporarily nicknamed Rebel and Yankee. Please don't anyone be offended with these. My family tree has every color leaf, red, yellow, black, and white. I was raised in South Carolina, my husband was raised in Conneticut. We're a mixed up bunch and the nest is in our yard. Anyway, it's fine to name one's offspring after a Grandparent, so one after me (Rebel) and one after my husband (Yankee). I have no idea what we'll do if a 3rd head pops up smile

Rebel was napping on the South side of the nest. Yankee was trying to figure out what these "wing" things are and bumped Rebel, who responded with a wing whack. It was so precious! Kids are kids, regardless of legs, arms, or wings.

Yesterday morning as I was getting the cooler out for the Diversity Fair I got to see Momma Hawk serving breakfast. I didn't have the binoculars, but it sure looked like one of my lizards. Everything is a Circle and that includes the Circle of Life.

We're planning another photo shoot tomorrow. I need to find a helmet and call Walgreens to make sure their machine is still working.

Thanks for the update Jane. You're right, kids will be kids, hooves, wings, flippers, paws and all.

Everytime I've watched nature's birthing cycle, I've not once observed it without many of the same characteristics as human beings. Minus the fur or wings, if I stuck a human head on one of them, it's difficult to see the differences in behavior.

BTW I LOVE the names you've chosen. It's a stretch that someone out there could be offended, but all walks of life I suppose. I think they're brilliant!!! wink

Love the names! They have meaning and connection to you, which is important. What kinds of hawks are they? I'd love to see pictures of them.


I look forward to reading your comments.
