UPDATED: Osprey Chicks Naming Contest!

If you have been watch the Hog Island Audubon Osprey Live Cam, then you have noticed we have three sweet new osprey chicks! Rachel and Steve have been such incredible parents, as you have probably witnessed, and so we thought it would be a great time to name the three chicks!

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)!

Please write your suggestions in the comments below and make sure to upvote your favorite submissions! Contest ends on Wednesday, June 14th, and will be decided by CamOps/Mods!

UPDATE: Ding, ding we have a winner! We are pleased to introduce Aspen, Sierra, and Spirit II named by Barb Pleczynski-Glassboro,NJ!
