Thread subject: SeaSpray and SeaBreeze
Name Date Message
Fred W. 03/17/04 02:16 pm Carpe Diem: St. Patrick's Day.
I present and propose two Fish Hawk names for our just returned Osprey friends on this bleak and snowy Brookhaven day.
Our parent birds need family names, rather than the cold He/She, or 'the male' or 'the female', wouldn't you agree?
The Sea Eagle names are SeaSpray (He) and SeaBreeze (Her). ---They intimately go together in the Natural World.
Then, next year, when the Freedom and Liberty return and join them, we can say:
"SeaSpray and SeaBreeze now happily roam the bountiful seas and shores with Freedom and Liberty".
Celeste 03/17/04 04:56 pm I like your idea Fred very much. I also started thinking of names for the chicks. I thought since these are our American osprey we should continue using American terms, like Patriot, Justice, etc. Last summer Long Island Newsday used our Freedom and Liberty names in the paper I know this is premature thinking, but it is fun!
Kathy 03/17/04 06:19 pm I agree with Celeste, to continue using American terms. So now, we all have to come up with names for the parents as well as the chicks.
Let the fun begin!!!!
Mickey 03/17/04 07:50 pm Greats ideas Fred. While watching the snow continue to fall I had a idea too. Hows about we name the male Dennis and the female after Mr Pulestons` wife ? It would be a very nice tribute to a man and his wife who obviously have made sacrifices in their lives for these birds to have the success we are all seeing now. Or maybe name them after 2 of Mr Pulestons` grandchildren.
As far as the chicks go, I agree with Celeste and only hope we get to name 3 this year !! :)
Mickey 03/17/04 07:55 pm Dennis & Betty a lovely tribute !
Kathy 03/17/04 08:57 pm Dennis and Betty for the adults sounds like a good idea.
RonS 03/17/04 09:14 pm Notwithstanding the surperb suggestion our Poet Laureat, I also vote for Dennis and Betty,
