Good morning, everyone! Karen has asked me to stop by and tell you what names the family has chosen for the babies, so here I am.

Yesterday my boys and I brainstormed and thought up a list of names. We started out with Fuzz and Bob (short for Bobblehead), but eventually progressed to some better ones. At last we decided upon Hunter and Talon (aren't they cool names?), and I called my father (the nest is on his property) to suggest them to him. His response was short and immediate.

"Oh, no. Last year's eaglets were Alpha and Bravo, so this year's are Charlie and Delta."

*cue crickets singing* Seriously? Charlie and Delta?

You'll have to forgive him--he's a helicopter pilot and is obsessed with flying terminology. I'm a little scared, because this means if Ma and Pa White Rock have twins again next year, they'll be Echo and...Foxtrot. Followed by Golf and Hotel.

Brace yourselves, people Smile

So there you go. It's Charlie and Delta. Even though Talon and Hunter have a nicer ring to them (not that I'm biased or anything), I guess I'll just have to find my own eagle nest or use the names for characters in a future book!

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I sure hope Charlie and Delta figure out how to get along! All that pecking seems kind of vicious to me. I find myself wincing a lot. Ah, sibling rivalry...

Kaylea or should I say Kilo, Titter What a great post! I am chuckling (I never take this naming thing too seriously myself; most of the names people come up with I don't like -- just my opinion Shh )

I was kinda okay with your Dad's system (and it certainly is fitting, considering his profession) -- until I read Golf and Hotel Rolling on floor laughing
Your comments are priceless.
I say, whatever.... Titter

Thanks for letting us know. Tell the boys they obviously put a lot of thought into this and they did quite well! Wub

Green LOL how funny Kaylea! I loved that read...ok so Charlie is the first and Delta is the second I'm assuming. I did really like your boys coming up with Hunter and Talon too! Very funny about what the next few years will be but please ask your father to pass on Echo, we have some painful eaglet memories at HWF with that name

7:24 a quick glimpse of our sweeties alone in the nest before Ma arrived. (it was Pa earlier in my confusion)

Mom gave both babies a good feed and dad dropped by with more food for the larder. Once mom had settled back down on the nest, he perched on a branch to survey his domain. Beautiful.

OK, I must ask: How do you all make the collages? I am not liking the restrictions to a single s'cap - esp. if one wants to show a sequence to clarify an event. Many posters have found a way around this by doing the "collages" as a single File.

What's the trick? Program? App?
