Guess the bird ... by it's alternative name (1 Viewer)

An appropriate descriptive/guessable name, maybe more appropriate than it's existing one, or maybe not in some cases. No patronyms or derogatory place names please.

An easy one to start, hopefully - ??

New name (plus part of the world found in)

Pied Flufftail (Europe) = ???

The bit in bold was meant to be followed by a smiley of course - this thread was inspired (if that is the right word?) by the AOS bird naming proposal thread -

and is meant to be a light hearted place to make up more appropriate, humorous or alternative names for birds, both those with and without patronyms.
