Utica's new Peregrine Falcon chicks now have names.

The eldest chick will be named "Comet", the second hatched chick will be named "Skye" and the last nestling will be known as "Orion." Over 300 names were submitted in a contest to name the chicks.

The Utica Peregrine Falcon Project says Comet, Skye and Orion could begin leaving the nest on the Adirondack Bank Building in Downtown Utica as early as Monday.
