DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — MidAmerican Energy Company is announcing the names of four peregrine falcon chicks that hatched recently in utility nesting boxes in Davenport and Muscatine.
The utility says in a news release Thursday that a female hatched in Davenport was named Sandy, in memory of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting.
Two females hatched in Muscatine were named Spirit and Thunder. A male hatched in Muscatine was named Mashka.
The names were selected from suggestions submitted through MidAmerican’s Facebook page.
The nesting boxes are located outside a MidAmerican Energy building in Davenport and the Louisa Generating Station in Muscatine.
