Thanks to Bermudaonion’s Weblog for hosting this weekly event. Head over there to play along.
I only ran across one new-to-me word this week. It’s a bird I’d never heard of in The Old Motel Mystery created by Gertrude Chandler Warner.
anhinga– any of a genus (Anhinga) of long-necked birds having a sharp, pointed bill and inhabiting swampy regions of tropical and subtropical America. Also called darter, snakebird, water turkey.
“Now the bird is coming up. He’s speared a fish with his sharp beak.”
“The bird ia an anhinga,” Rolf said.
Any new words for you this week?
