My love of nature far exceeds of my knowledge thereof.
When asked about the name of any small bird I reply, without hesitation Austrian/black/yellow/Kentucky/billed - flycatcher, and have introduced many new names to be carried forward for generations, all without the honor of being credited.
The flycather above made me think of this joke
A traffic cop pulled a hillbilly farmer over for speeding.
The farmer pleaded that he wasn't much over the speed limit.
But the cop continued to slowly write out the ticket.
He brushed a fly off his face.
The farmer said; That circle creepy bothering you?
The cop said; What's a circle creepy?
The farmer said; That fly - they circle a horse's backside.
The cop stopped writing, looked at the farmer, and said; Are you trying to say I'm a horse's ass?
The farmer said; Never! I have a great respect for officers of the law.
The cop carried on writing.
After a while the farmer said; But you can't fool them flies.
