Nettie's Home for Confused Birds
As if one annoying bird that sings at the wrong time of the day wasn't enough, now I have another. As I understand it, most birds chirp during the day and owls hoot at night. That's how it works, right? Well, not my birds. One's singing happily away at 4 A.M. He's been around a while, I think he's an insomniac. That's OK, we all have our nights, maybe I could get used to him.
But no, one bird isn't enough. As I sit here blogging, I can hear an owl hooting. Maybe he's hunting, or...Wait, owls are NOCTURNAL. I don't understand why all the birds are picking on me. This is, of course, why I will never move to the country. The cheerful songs of the birds in the morning would drive me even more insane. That being said....
I'm pretty sure the new bird is an owl, and Amigo thinks the other one is a mockingbird. So my question to you is, what should I call them? I suppose this is somewhat like Jeff's contests- whoever's names I like will get...something. Keep it clean, one name for the owl, one for the mocking-whatever. Have at it, peeps.
