The first naming and banding of the season was at Valley Power Plant in Milwaukee. Rosie, Brady and Honor were the names that Cub Scouts from Rose Glen Elementary School in Waukesha gave to three peregrine falcons. The scouts were present for the banding session with wildlife expert Greg Septon on May 17. The scouts selected Rosie after their school, Brady, for one of the scouts, and Honor.

The students named the three male chicks Hawkeye, Lightning and Tony, which was chosen at the last minute when they decided to name one of the chicks after reporter Tony Clark who was covering the event for Fox 6 News’ Real Milwaukee show. Clark's story aired May 29 at 9 a.m. WISN-TV also covered the Oak Creek banding.
