We Have Two Winners!

The Friends of Blackwater are proud to announce that Karen Annie and Julia Bond are our winners in the 2010 Eaglet-Naming Contest with the names of Aquila and Avis. Aquila (for our male eaglet) is Latin for eagle and Avis (for our female eaglet) is Latin for bird.

Although a couple other people entered the name Aquila, Karen was the first, so she was the winner of one of our prizes.

We learned from our winners that Julia is a first-grade teacher in Boulder, Colorado, and we hear her class was very excited that she won. And Karen is an executive assistant who lives in nearby Alexandria, Virginia. Congratulations to them both, and thanks again to all our participants!
