My favorite along these lines was a prior partner's story - she was birding casually in a park and was asked "What are those birds with the funny feet?" to which the answer was "American Coots." The second question came then "And how do you know they're American?" to which the immediate answer was "Because they speak English." Still makes me chuckle.

I remember in a hide might have been Lochwinnoch someone calling out 'look at that lovely Green Tit' it got me excited but then I realised they were looking at a Great Tit. Mind you if I could rename a bird I would actually rename a Great Tit a Green Tit.

Hello,

I am keeping to the natural world but moving to amphibians. One autumn, I was a Central Park's Turtle Pond, when a child asked her mother, "Mommy, where do the turtles go in the winter?" The mother replied, "The Park has a turtle roundup, and keeps them indoors."

Happy bird watching,
Arthur Pinewood

Made a huge clanger yourself there! Turtles are reptiles not amphibians even if their lifestyle may be amphibious.

Hello aeshna5,

I have been publicly shamed but deservedly so.

Ta!

Happy bird watching,
Arthur
