Fascinating history of Booming Ben!I thought so as well, and while I can't quite recall just how I stumbled upon it at the moment, I DO know that it was all because of your Backyard Bird Challenge...LOVE IT!!! : D
I don't want to add "personal names of individual birds" to the challengeUnderstandable!!!
, but it turns out your book qualifies anyway: there's a species of cuckoo called "ani":FABulous!!! I had no idea that ANI was a Cuckoo Species, either...THANKS, GoryDetails!!! : D
I don't think I'd known that before, but I keep stumbling across unexpected bird-names that are great embedded-word candidates: "rail", for example, or the crossword-puzzle favorite "erne", plus many more...aMAZing what knowledge one gains by participating in the BookCrossing Challenges...and other BC Forums...I LOVE being a BOOKCROSSER!!! : D
I just checked my stash(es) and found only 4 which seem to apply,
