MYSTIC — The Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center has three new resident birds and is holding a contest to name them.
A broadwing hawk, a barred owl and a screech owl have all become permanent residents of the nature center in the last few months, two because of injuries that make them non-releasable and one that came to us from a rescue that could no longer care for it.
To enter the naming contest, post the suggested name(s) on the appropriate photo at tinyurl.com/ld8wguq. Entries are being accepted through Monday, June 30, and the winning names will be announced in early July.
Nature center staff will choose the winning names. Each winner will be able to meet the birds in a special up-close-and-personal session.
