The raptors hatched in early April in a nest box at the top of UC Berkeley’s Campanile.
Nearly 3,700 people cast votes to name Annie and Lou’s falcon offspring atop the UC Berkeley Campanile. “Ursula” barely missed the cut.
The first of Annie and Lou’s chicks hatched Monday afternoon. “Typically, all the eggs hatch within about 48 hours,” a Cal Falcons biologist said.
Annie’s new mate has been given a new name in a Cal Falcons contest. The bird will be named after a UC Berkeley alumna who was the partner of Annie’s namesake, the explorer and naturalist Annie Alexander.
UC Berkeley students Danielle Egan and Saumya Goyal launched Connect-In-Place and were overwhelmed by the response they received.
