My chosen on-line handle is RockyRook.
The 'Rocky' comes from two parts:
1 - I grew up near the Rocky Mountains and often went camping in various sub-ranges of the Rockies in the Wallowa, Nez Perce and Payette national forests.
2 - my favorite movie is Rocky
The 'Rook' comes from two parts as well:
1 - obviously, the rook in chess
2 - I love the rook bird, also known as a crow or raven - it's just cool! Although, rooks, ravens and crows are technically different, people often interchange the names for the birds.
Today, I was reading the news and was fascinated to see this story: Birds Attack Peace Doves Freed from Pope's Window. A seagull and a rook attacked the two doves that were freed from the window. Below are some pictures that were taken of the event.
