Does anyone know the etymology of Jack Winter? Is it named after Mr Jacky
Winter? Or is the 'Jacky' part named after someone and the 'Winter' some
reference to season? Or is it some 19th century colloquialism? And thus, if
one was so silly as to only use capitals for the common names of birds,
except where those common names comprised otherwise capitalised words, does
one capitalise Jacky, Winter, both or neither?
