    We were speaking of bird nicknames and pronunciations in another diary, and that reminded me when I read this that I've heard birders occasionally make the mistake of calling these "slate-covered juncoes." Along with "double-breasted cormorants." Anthropomorphizing, in a sense, as those are terms we'd use for human-centered things, so I guess they are easy mistakes to make.
