They are Aero and Prairie.

Orv & Willa, the Bald Eagle parents, built their nest high above the Wright Brothers National Museum at Carillon Historical Park.

Aero & Prairie are in homage to the Wright brothers' aeroplane and Huffman Prairie Flying Field, the cow pasture where Orville & Wilbur flew the 1905 Wright Flyer III, according to Carillon’s Facebook post.
