Some great responses here (pictures and puns included)!

Apologies if it is too abstruse for some - a bit of clarification, then, for some of our international and/or non-Ornithological friends: "Roseate" refers to the Roseate Spoonbill, and "Phoenicopt'" refers to the Flamingo (Phoenicopterus, and to "cop" something is American slang for stealing) "Sandhills" refers to the Sandhill Crane (and sandals are open shoes). The others should be self explanatory.

Ed covered all but the Flamingo and Ibis - maybe someone can contribute those.

I've been resisting adding more puns, but since there have been so many birds mentioned, perhaps we Otter bring some mammals in for the Gnu year!

I can't hope to match Ira and Lou in replying to this wonderfully witty post. Very well done and best wishes of the season to everyone.
