I have seen a few books and websites that describe the area between a
bird's eye and bill as the "lores", and some that describe it as the
"lore".  I would assume that "lores" is plural, but many diagrams (e.g.
Simpson & Day) use the word on a picture of the side of a bird, where
all the other terms are singular.  So which is it - does a bird have one
lores or one lore on each side of its head?
