My daughter changed how i view the doors forever earlier his week. She begged me to start the “car with wing doors” video (good girl ) And when the doors opened she said enthusiastically: It`s bunny doors! From that moment all I see is a big bunny with large ears.
Guessing the car will be named the bunny or something
Ornithologically, and etymologically, speaking....
the thread's title is correct. "Falcon" comes from the Latin falc- or falx, meaning sickle, and refers to their falculate - sickle-shaped - wings: slender and tapering to a very sharp point. The accipiters,or true hawks, of which the goshawk is the pre-eminent example, have short wings that are rounded at their ends, and allow their owners stunning agility, as this video testifies.
the word "goshawk" is awkward and not well known; "falcon" is cool and ubiquitous.
Neat video, though!
BTW: Webster disagrees with this etymology, but I disagree with Webster.
