The two chicks have been named BK and CR. In each photo BK is on the left and CR on the right. BK has a darker forehead and the white stripe on its back is a bit wider and more prominent.

Two little cuties! Thanks for the info on their markings. I'll try to keep it in mind, but every year I have trouble telling the little ones apart. It's not until the necklace shows that I can even tell a male from a female.

Lovely close up of our Miss Bea this morning. Thanks.
Wonder if she'll let us have a look at BK and CR.

Good morning Vivian,

You just missed BK and CR. They had flounder for breakfast.

How are the letters/names determined?

In the past the chicks have been named from employee initials. This year the chicks are named from the moderator's grandparents.

Hope the moderator's grandparents know how special they are!

BK and CR are now big enough that I can see them in the nest without a close up! So cute this morning.

But the close up of Bea feeding them just now is marvelous! Thanks.
