Sometimes the old names are better than the new ones. A good example of this may be a bird now named the Common Gallinule (!!) better known to older folks as the Moorhen. The old name seems to fit this bird with its chicken’s bill, duck’s body, and heron’s feet and legs, and which sometimes clucks...
