See, that's the proof that American Bird's names are always well chosen, easy to remember for the visiting birders!

@Laurent:actually, when I wrote my "names in the names" post, I was CERTAIN Sandhill cranes were named after some Mr. or Mrs. Sandhill, like Sandwich Tern ;-)

@John: exactly, exactly. Bruce was a happy man, and lucky too!
