Previously, I posted about a pigeon nesting on my porch. She produced a couple eggs, but frankly I didn't follow up on it because they turned out to be duds. I'm sure that's the correct term an ornithologist would use–duds. But the pigeon mother and father rebuilt the nest and tried again, and yesterday I noticed mother was absent for the first time in weeks. So I stood up on the porch railing and saw this:
I know they look huge compared to that egg on the left (another dud?), but a little internet research tells me they're not much more than a week old. I probably shouldn't get attached, but I would like y'all's help in naming them. Thank you.
I'm going to vote for one of them to be named Mo. Seems fitting for a pigeon.
I'm gonna go for broke and suggest Smelly. Possibly Toodlewinks.
Your eldest niece suggests Penelope and Andrew. I don't know why.
Hereabouts, there is a long tradition of naming stray birds Mugwort. (Coincided by a long tradition of burying ex-stray-birds behind the house.) Putting in suggestion for Mugwort I and Mugwort II. Maybe Mugwort Nil, for the dud. *folding up voting paper, stuffing into slot beside monitor* Off to call the IT man.
Jon and Lane. That's good names.
Or maybe Sonny and Cher.
Considering they are often compared to the rodents that scury below our feet about our basement cellars, may I reccomend Nicodemus and Jenner.
I had to research and draw a baby pigeon for a book just last week. Those are some pretty freaky creatures. All that weird yellow hair... ~~shivers~~
But my vote for pigeon names:
BERT & BERNICE
How about Dudley, in honor of the lost siblings.
if you name one Mo then the other should be named Willams.
paul and joanne, maybe? (after newman and woodward)
peanut butter and jelly?
apples and oranges?
nostradamus and rasputin?
Pidge and Ian...get it? ha ha...
Lurch and Elvis.
Because I like alliteration and someone already suggested Penelope, my vote is for Penelope and Pete.
Pidgeon Penelope and Pidgeon Pete.
I'm voting for Wackford and Smike-you can't go wrong with Dickens.
Tomax and Xamot
this is amazing me and my dad rescue injure birds.
I think that it is a really bad idea to get attached to baby birds. The likelihood is so high that they will die and break your heart.
Alowiscious & Periwinkle III.
Larry Funklesteen and The Grunkus.
Xavier and Milla? (But like the pretentious Zah-vee-yay)
How about 'Beans' and 'Spunk'? You know, full of zest, get up and go, energy.
Got to be. In my mind they are already.
