Hmmm. On a nature note to folks who live back East what you call a horsefly differs radically from ours out West. Yours are smaller, short bodied and a bright blue and green color. Ours are big black and grey long bodied. Think Blackhawk helicopter compared to B1 bomber. A Western coyote and an Eastern coyote. Well, depends on Western/Eastern where I think. Ours around here have gotten way bigger in the last 30 years and I hear certain places East have as well due to hybriding with wolves. Ours have been mixing with feral dogs.


Western rattlers and Eastern rattlers. Big differences in both size and coloring. Our several species out here minus down TX way are smaller and lighter colored. Habitat. But we also have the Mojave Green which is a particularly nasty customer even when compared to far larger Eastern timber and Diamondbacks. Type of venom.


That's a few interesting comparisons. I'm sure there are more.

Why is it called the Tufted Titmouse? Is there another kind?


If one can be over-wrought, can one be less severely just plain wrought?

"Wrought" literally translated means 'twisted and beaten." So being overly so...self explanatory. As to the titmouse IDK.

There's small mouth bass and large mouth bass.... What about all those big mouth basses I always get seated near at the bar when I just want to enjoy a quiet drink?
