You got it right. You can only link to an image, not show it inline.

And link to the column in question: http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/16/where-are-all-the-baby-pigeons

Obligatory link to my thread and photos

great photos. Nice to have close access to the chicks. I see they were also two. I wonder if that is a very common number for them.

Yes, it’s usually two, although in the last couple of batches we had, one egg was unfertilized.
