NH students name White House hawk

The students in Jim Cutting's 4th grade class have become synonymous with the red-tailed hawk.

"Whenever I see one I go 'oh my gosh, it's a red tail hawk'," said student Giana Bramante.

"I was really surprised at the White House actually emailed Mr. Cutting," said student Casey Coleman.

A raptor has settled at the White House, and they wanted to give it a name. Naturally, they asked Cutting's students for help.

"A few people said Rusty and a few other names and then we voted down to two," said Coleman.

The class settled on Lincoln. They named the raptor after the former president and after their school, Lincoln Akerman. The White House made the announcement last week and credited the students.
