Downy Woodpecker Chick

A few wildlife family names:

Opposum - The male is a jack, the female is called a jill and the baby is a joey, like other marsupial or "pouched" babies. Wonder if mom and dad go up a hill to fetch water?

Turtle- They are called male and female, babies are called hatchlings and a group is a bale.

Raccoon- The male is called a boar and the female a sow, the babies are called cubs and a group is a nursery or gaze. Like both pigs and bears!

Woodpeckers - are called male and female and the baby birds are named chicks and a group is a descent.

Pigeons - referred to as cocks and hens. The babies are squabs and the group, like many other birds are called flocks.

Blue jays and hummingbirds are the same. However their babies are called chicks and a group of Blue Jays can be called a band or a party! A group of hummingbirds are called a charm - how charming!
