Disney's Frozen Fan Lets It Go and Names Woodmen Tower Falcons

June 12, 2014

Omaha, NE – Woodmen of the World is proud to announce the names of the newest batch of Woodmen Tower falcon chicks. The young peregrines were named in honor of four of the main characters in Disney's Frozen. Their names are:

  • Anna, female, band 987-98193 (D/41)
  • Elsa, female, band 987-98195 (D/43)
  • Olaf, male, band 987-98194 (D/42) male
  • Hans, male, band 987-98192 (D/40) male

Woodmen of the World held their annual Facebook contest to name the chicks. During the contest period fans submitted their group of four names on the Woodmen of the World Facebook page (WOWInsurance) contest tab. An internal Woodmen of the World committee reviewed and selected the top five group name entries. These top five entries were posted on the WOWInsurance Facebook page contest tab, where fans voted for their favorite. The winning name suggestions were submitted by Jenny Sopcich of Omaha on behalf of her son JT, who will receive a framed picture of the falcons and an invitation to the 2015 VIP Banding.

The falcons have left the nest and will be flying soon. You can catch them on the Tower cameras at www.woodmen.org/falcons/falcon_cam.cfm or follow them on Twitter @WoodmenFalcons or the FalconWatch blog at http://woodmen.typepad.com/falconwatch/.
