ANN ARBOR – A peregrine falcon returned to nest on University of Michigan’s campus and the school wants the public’s help in naming the new chick.
The large bird of prey is the fastest bird -- and animal -- in the world, reaching speeds of more than 200 mph when performing hunting dives.
U-M’s Public Affairs office tweeted a photo of the fuzzy little guy with a request for name submissions.

A peregrine falcon has once again nested on @UMich's #AnnArbor campus, resulting in one blue-tiful chick who is in need of an a-maize-ing name. Tweet us your suggestion below before June 16, 2021. pic.twitter.com/HNngsPHCyR
The public has until June 16 to tweet @UMPublicAffairs their top choices.
Twitter users already suggested Wolverina, Wolvegrine and Jalen -- after Michigan Football’s Jalen Mayfield who was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in this year’s NFL Draft.
We suggest fuzzball.
