Blackface.  Black-faced Cormorant, Black-faced Woodswallow, Black-faced Monarch.  I'm confused already without even going overseas.  Black-faced Laughingthrush.  Birders up here - Townsville - call Red-winged Parrots "Redwings".  I was brought up in Ireland where Redwings are thrushes.    And breeders call Red-winged Parrots "Scarletwings" . . .
