Bird names

Birds have some interesting names.  I'm flipping through National Audubon Society Field Guide to Florida and seeing northern shoveler, American wigeon, lesser scaup, ruddy duck, clapper rail, American coot, limpkin, killdeer, black-necked stilt, willet, ruddy turnstone, whimbrel, red knot, pectoral sandpiper, dunlin, short-billed dowitcher, laughing gull, royal tern, least tern, sandwich tern, sooty tern, brown  noddy, prothonotary warbler, and rusty blackbird.
