Strange Names You Hear Around Our House

I've been a bird-brain lately, pun intended.

Just check here and here if you're not convinced.

So I thought I'd share the names my kids and I have for some birds, because we're weird that way.

  1. Chip - Chickadee
  2. Nutty - Nuthatch
  3. Tim - Tufted Titmouse
  4. Woody - Red-bellied Woodpecker
  5. Woodette - Female Red-bellied Woodpecker
  6. Mac - Cardinal
  7. Robby - Robin
  8. Donna - as in prima donna, for the juvenille female Oriole that would just as soon let others feed her from our oranges than to eat for herself
  9. Phil - for the Pileated Woodpecker in our backyard in Virginia
  10. Phyllis - for the female Pileated Woodpecker in our backyard in Virginia
  11. Gus - Male Goldfinch
  12. Goldilocks - Female Goldfinch

Funny! We have crazy names here too, but they are for the people and the cat in the house.

I too just read the story about your husband and your family. What a generous gift. I am so touched by your generosity and hope that all goes well for both families. Much luck and love.

Such clever and cute names! I have always called my daughter “my little chickadee”.
