PORT WASHINGTON — Four We Energies peregrine falcon chicks now have names.

The chicks were born at the Port Washington Power Plant. On Wednesday, June 3rd, they were banded and given names.

Some veterans from the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight program and some employees at the power plant were on hand and ended up naming the birds.

There are two males and two females. Their names are Lori Ann and Susie for the girls, and Norman and Spikey for the boys.

Six We Energies power plants have nest boxes on them. Overall, over 200 falcons have been born at the power plants.
