Tits like Coconuts - and other bird news from the RSPB

RSPB website bans use of the word 'cock' | Uk News | News | Telegraph

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds has banned the use of the word "cock" when applied to the male of the species, in case it causes offence. - though Tit seems to be OK, and the RSPB is happy to show videos of fishy breathed shags.


It might avoid the unintentionally humorous moment when a radio show guest, describing the sculpted bird on the top of the Cock pub in Fulham, said the building had 'an enormous stone cock on the roof.'
No, it isn't a gay bar....
