So, I’m sure that a few people are wondering how I got the name Redbird when I am mostly a brunette! I say mostly because between the ages of 1 1/2 and 3 1/2 I was a strawberry blonde and since I was old enough to dye my hair, I’ve almost always chosen red as my color.
However, that has nothing to do with the nickname although it totally could be! My husband Greywolfe writes as well and has a story with a character in it named Wyldechylde. Said character found a young girl in the forest one day but all he saw at first was a flash of her deep red hair and as she did not know her name, he named her Redbird. I loved the character and as she was a lover of Nature, Grey ‘gave’ her to me to RP on various forums that we used to roleplay on and it stuck as most people that were on the forums only knew me by Redbird. Plus, it probably also helps that the Cardinal and the Red-Tailed Hawk are two of my favorite birds. 😉
SO ! There you have it! You now all know where Redbird came from. The other part of my nickname –Stormcrow — is my Pagan name. I love but am terrified of storms and the Crow is one of my BIG animal totems and I thought they sounded good together!
~Namaste and Blessings to all~
