Well Hello there Janet,

If we go with having names that match their actions?
then should we ponder for a while as to why a "Mopoke"
is so named? Should we have sought consent from all
Maureens upon this planet before we flew down this
path? I have always thought the black necked stork was
in fact so named because of it's aversion to wash
correctly behind it's ears? totally unlike like my
Eggy who now has grey hair just like her Dard ... I
know Dard is correct she tells me so.

Sinned Cere Lee,
John A. Gamblin (singing in the rain)

Hullo bird lovers, A Postscript to my comment about
Black-necked Stork being not a descriptive title, I
think that Jabiru is very descriptive, (and quite
onomatopoeic) because isn't that what its great bill
