Birding | Common Waxbill

Have you noticed how NOT-Flattering bird names are? I mean – let’s look at today’s little waxbill – The Common Waxbill. How can you name, like officially name, something common? That’s not very nice. Or the Thick-Knee… You wouldn’t call your mother-in-law that, but a poor innocent bird! But I will give the bird namers this – at least they make me laugh… I mean, who cannot laugh when reading these names?
