"Erasing history" in the WP (1 Viewer)

Is there anything a Cisticola can't do?
Singing, whistling, chattering, thrilling, bubbling, tinkling, wailing, churring, chirping, croaking, piping, siffling, zitting, or wing-snapping...!
And besides those, you have rock-loving and even cloud-scraping...

On the other side of the name spectrum, there is Dorst's, Levaillant's, Carruthers's, Chubb's, Hunter's,...

If you're a cisticola wanting to impress the females, would you rather introduce yourself as Cloud-scraping / bubbling, or as 'hi, my name is Chubb's'?
Another very brilliant idea!

Because of the rock-loving cisticola, one could rename more birds. It will raise interest among normal people in the often unappreciated Rock Pipit. Rock-loving ptarmigan, rock-loving partridge, rock-loving dove, rock-loving pipit, rock-loving martin, rock-loving nuthatch, rock-loving bunting and rock-loving sparrow.

And, of course, blues rock-loving thrush and alternative rock-loving thrush.
