KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A special committee brought together to name a peregrine falcon that has made its home atop the Fifth-Third Building in Kalamazoo.

As submitted by the Fuller family, of Kalamazoo, Erin, Nate, and 5-year-old son Theo, the bird will be named Promise.

"This name pays homage to the Kalamazoo Promise and gives the bird's name a distinct Kalamazoo connection, honoring its birthplace no matter where it may end up. It also speaks to the promise of more peregrines in Kalamazoo for years to come, thanks to many partners who have helped this amazing nesting success occur. Last but not least for the poets in the crowd, 'Promise' alliterates with 'Peregrine,'" the family said.

Fifth-Third Bank says the name was selected from more than 60 suggestions submitted by community members.
