Four recently hatched falcon chicks named after football coaches

After receiving hundreds of submissions through the university's Facebook page, four peregrine falcon chicks that recently hatched in a nesting box atop University Hospital have been named Bo, Fritz, Lloyd and Yost. 

 

Read this previous story for background on the falcon chicks.

The university selected the winning names after inviting the community to participate an online naming contest. The names reference former head football coaches Bo Schembechler, Herbert (Fritz) Crisler, Lloyd Carr and Fielding Yost.

The falcon chicks were banded in late May so they can be tracked by the Department of Natural Resources.
