Odds and Ends
One bird in the hand

You're not the only ones. :P
One of our most iconic birds in Canada, we somehow decided to call the "Loon" (
They're very pretty waterfowl and have a unique call). We've had them on our $1 coin since we first retired the paper $1 bill (which is how those coins started being called "loonies").
For those who might not be up on their more obscure English terms, a "loon" also means a crazy person; short for "lunatic".
I GUESS it does make weird noises at night, but still... >.>
