The WoodmenLife Tower Falcons officially received their names on June 16, following a Facebook vote. The names are:
- Charlotte (B/85)
- Penelope (B/86)
- Lilly (B/90)
- Max (H31)
The winning names were submitted by Sandra Phillips of Macedonia, Ohio.
WoodmenLife hosted its annual falcon chick-naming contest on the organization’s Facebook business page. Fans entered groups of four names, and five finalist name groups were determined by an internal WoodmenLife Committee. The finalists were re-posted on the Facebook page, and the winner was determined by popular fan votes.
Lilly Found Dead
Unfortunately, just a few short days after being named, Lily (B/90) (shown below) was found dead on the 5th floor balcony roof of the WoodmenLife Tower. It appears that she hit a window.
The remaining birds continue to fly off the roof of the WoodmenLife Tower and are routinely rescued when they land – which is normal. Birds have been recovered from the sidewalk, alleyway, parking garage, nearby Courthouse lawn and the 5th floor balcony. Each time, the birds are recovered and placed on the WoodmenLife Tower roof where mom and dad continue to feed and nurture them.
