2007 Sidney Eaglet is named Skye

ArchiveCongratulations to John Simpson for submitting the winning entry. He stated the reason he chose the name Skye was "the chick is often looking skyward; she/he will be spending a great deal of it's life in the 'sky', it sounds like a 'cool' name for an eagle!"

Also, congratulations to Kari for submitting the runner-up entry of 'Sky'. She stated: "The reason that I chose this name was the aura I felt the chick produced in it's first weeks in the nest. It was always waiting for food, a parent, or just adjusting to it's surroundings in general - always looking up toward the sky! As it matures, begins it's limb-to-limb movements, the sky will still be it's destination."

The names submitted for this year's Eaglet Naming Contest were exceptional! We would like to thank all the thousands of children and adults who have been following the Sidney Nest and also a big thank you to all who submitted names for the eaglet.

It was a very difficult task choosing a name. A committee of four Moderators organized all the entries and prepared a list for David Hancock. The committee chose eight names and David made his final choice from these selections.

Thank you all so much for submitting names, the committee for all the work in organizing and receiving the entries, and to David for making the final choice.
