Feathered Friends - Finn

I'd like you to meet this pretty little bugger, Finnegan, Finn for short.

For those of you who may not know, Finn is the name of my next son which I'm never going to have, but if I had another boy I'd name him Finnegan.

And here's another useless piece of information for you, Kevin and I first discovered our attraction for each other at a bar in Scotland called "Finnegan's Wake". So, I just think Finn would be a totally cool name for our boy. No one else in my family agrees with me. So, I've named the bird Finn instead. Plus, I'm 99.99% sure we're done having kids, anyway. And, even if we do have more kids, it's gotta be a girl so that I can name her Marin Leigh.

OK, back to the bird. Finn is a male House Finch.

You lookin' at me?

Enjoying a snack (see it there in his beak?)

Sweet Bird!

You can not name your child Finnegan. It makes me think of Casey & Finnegan from Mr. Dress Up. Well, then again, kids won't remember that! :)

I think you need to have at least 2 more kids so you can use those good names.

But it's ok that you named the finch Finnegan, because he's cool.

So was Casey's dog.
