DUBLIN (CBS/AP) — Two baby golden eagles born in a nest visible on the Internet for years have been given names picked by the public.

The Contra Costa Times said the monikers Coco and Bellaboo were picked at random by a City Council drawing out of 230 entries.

Other names with repeat entries were Patrick, Goldie, Lucy and Dublin.

The eaglets were the new offspring of Bella, the mother eagle, who has nested in a tree at the same protected spot in eastern Dublin for more than two decades even as neighborhoods grew around her.

Her nest was visible on a public webcam that allows city employees to make sure that people aren’t trespassing into the preserve and bothering the eagles.

The newspaper said the fluffy young eagles are growing well.
