Cowart's Common Room
Jose is a mum!!!!

I'm so excited I couldn't keep the news til I update my blog - Jose, my flightless dove, and her mate, Happy have got at least one gorgeous delicate fluffy yellow baby - hatched early this morning. I was so surprised - I had counted the days to make it hatching day tomorrow!

Isn't he or she cute, and doesn't Jose have a twinkle in her eye?!

(I will update my blog with all the details asap)

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar Yes. Well done, Faith and Jose but no, the chick is not cute - not yet! Baby birds are ugly!

Faith's Avatar Bill thinks the same as Rosie - but they are .... not precisely cute, but so new, so delicate - oh they're lovely, baby birds!

And Fennie - how do you get the accent on Jose?

Blackbird's Avatar Fennie just has flair.Very Happy

Congratulations on the new baby- mothers love them all. I'm not weighing in on the cuteness factor. But what a great accomplishment for you both.

Fennie's Avatar José - that way? Do you want to know what keys to press? On my Mac I press alt + e and then e - for an acute accent that is.

Though maybe it isn't José, at all but Joséphine. Or we could just call her Jo.

Our resident wood pidgeons baby made an appearance on the tree outside the kitchen window last night and was getting fed just feet away from us, HO got some photos but he's out and about today and has the flash card with him.

Faith's Avatar Thanks Fennie I had a go but it didnt work for me. She will always be Jose - after rescued San Jose Miners.

Love to see the babies when you get a chance FN. Nice pic of the day!

Pimsonthelawn's Avatar My young blackbirds, three of them have ended up in next doors asbo cat - water pistol of enormous proportions no effect. It all ended with me screaming at the neighbour to get a collar and bell for it.
I have a young wood pigeon too FN, it sits in the tree most of the day just waiting.

Hope Jose and baby are happy this morning.

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar So sorry Pims to hear about your baby blackbirds. New born birds may not be cute but fledglings certainly are.
I think your next purchase must be a blunderbuss! Evil or Very Mad

Camilla's Avatar How terribly sad Pims about the baby Blackbirds, hope the owner of that cat does put a bell and collar on her cat, it might then at least save the darling birds from being killed, nature can be soo cruel sometimes.
