...If not, I have a Red-leg....

I am sure some wag will draw my attention to this ambiguous statement, but I didn't mean that I have a red leg! :p

Super. Are they still around? I drove through your area over weekend on a leisurely drive from Point Pelee...-and thought about your owls.

Amazingly, some are still around !

Turtle Dove, the first in the UK, where they are rare; the second in Dordogne, France, where they are more common, although you hear them more than you see them.

You posted two turtle doves, and nobody could follow it up with a partridge ?  :p

Maybe they lacked a pear tree.

I have no idea what a Colly Bird is

They're calling birds, so I suppose many species would do. Four are needed.

I am not so sure about that. I used to think they were "calling" birds, but I read somewhere that it is "Colly", meaning "coaly" or black, so : blackbirds?

Cowboy -- This Blue Jay's feathers were a mess. Looks like he had a bad hair day every day. The feathers going down his leg were particularly bad. They were fluffed out so bad it looked like he was wearing chaps. Hence the name Cowboy. He hung around our back yard for about two and a half years and became almost tame.
