UPDATE: Hog Island Osprey Chick Naming Contest!


It’s that time of year again! We’ve got three beautiful osprey chicks on the Audubon Hog Island Osprey Nest. Rachel and Steve have been doing a wonderful job raising their young so it’s time to give some names to those beaks!

Submit your suggestions below and upvote your favorite names. The top ten submissions by Monday, June 18th with the most upvotes will move on to the final round where viewers will get to choose the final names!

To help get those creative juices flowing, we wanted to remind you that Rachel and Steve were named after conservationists/biologists (Rachel Carson, who wrote Silent Spring, and Project Puffin’s Steve Kress)!

So what are you waiting for? Submit below!

The results are in! Vote on your TOP THREE names here: https://linkto.run/p/QVPYLSR0

Polling will close on Friday, June 22nd!
