The Air Force is accepting name suggestions for its newest falcon mascot. 

The thus-far unnamed falcon is a one-month-old female gyrfalcon and will take the place of the Air Force Academy's oldest mascot Aurora. Aurora died last October at the ripe old falcon age of 23.

While the Academy's Cadet Wing will ultimately choose the newest mascot's name via a vote, the public has been invited to recommend names for the fluffy falcon by using the hashtag #youracademy on Twitter. Suggestions include "Fearless," "Velocity," and "Falcon McFalconface."

The vote will be held later this year.
