A naming contest is underway for the falcon chicks expected to hatch later this month in Green Bay. 

Peregrine falcons have returned to nest boxes at the Wisconsin Public Service Power Plants. 

The birds have laid eggs at the J.P. Pulliam plant in Green Bay. 

For the first time WPS is offering an uninterrupted live video from inside the nest at the company's YouTube channel

A falcon named Jill returned for her second year and already laid two eggs. 

The chick naming contest is being held for students in kindergarten through 8th grade. 

The selected names will be announced after the eggs hatch. 

The contest runs through April 30th.
