Well, common names have sure changed. While we wait for spring, and just for fun, would anyone like to guess the current common names of the following birds, all of which occur in BC, as given in Eliot's book. In no particular order:
Golden pileolated warbler
Desert sparrow hawk
None of these species are currently rare in BC - If there is enough interest, I will give the answers in a week or so.
