Several friends of this blog have asked me to give Mrs. Ace a name, or to hold a contest to that end.
This being April Fool's Day, I say let the nominations begin.
You may be chagrined to hear that one early bird has already come up with a great name: Winnie, the perfect description of her voice.
Me, I am not big on naming wild critters. "Ace" is short for the Latin word for owl, Asio. I named the male owl "Ace" because it is simpler than calling him the male screech owl in every post.
I call his mate "Mrs. Ace" because she arrived on the scene later last spring, and I needed an easy way to differentiate between the male and female, and get across that they were a pair.
So fire away. If anybody has a better name than Winnie or Mrs. Ace, let's hear it! Nominations ends Friday.
In the meantime, welcome to April. :-)
