How about not talking about birds at all, just their names.

So let's have a go at Black Ducks - in NZ Grey Ducks!

"Singing" Honeyeater (did someone see one while a Spiny-cheeked HE was
singing nearby?).

Sorry - I mentioned some behaviour.

And Tawny Frogmouths !!  They are grey.  (I checked that last night when we
saw 2 young being fed by an adult at a local golf course when we were out on
a frog hunt with a scout group.)

Incidentally - sorry to be talking about birds - our Frogmouths seem to be
doing better than other indigenous birds.  I wonder if nocturnal insects are
surviving the drought better than the diurnal ones.
