I happened upon a small wave of songbirds
migrating this morning. Among the Golden-crowned
and Ruby-crowned Kinglets
there were a few Warblers and some Blue-headed Vireos.
I was with a group of friends one time and I told them to look for the white spectacles on the Blue-headed Vireo. Well, they thought I said white testicles, and after viewing the bird for a little bit, one of the gals asked me how I could see the testicles?
They all chuckled while I exclaimed white SPECTACLES!
