Va. Wildlife Center Holding Hawk-naming Contest

February 7, 2011

The Wildlife Center of Virginia is asking people to name its education hawk.

The teaching and research wildlife hospital is taking online votes for the red-tailed hawk that will soon be visiting schools as one of the center's environmental ambassadors.

The center has been working with the hawk since it was admitted last year after being hit by a car. It was determined the hawk could never be released. The hawk will join about two dozen other animals that are part of the center's corps of education animals.

Five names were chosen by elementary schools in the Waynesboro area. The possible names are: Cherry Tail, Phoenix, Poppy, Ruby and Twizzler. Voting runs through February 21.
