Don't forget their cousins Will Ett and Will Yum Son's Sapsucker and all
their Will Son's kin (Warbler, Storm-Petrel, Snipe, Phalarope, Plover).

From the mists of the past, I recall two humorous and extremely well done
bird "guides" which had pages on the subject-line birds, as well as the Will
family. The latter comprised the Will (conjectural), Poorwill, Whippoorwill,
and Chuck Will's Widow, the calls of which have same number of syllables as
their names.

I liked it because its amusement came from actual birding experiences, such
as (unidentifiable (until they sing)) warblers silhouetted in treetops.
Unfortunately, I can't find my book at the moment or remember its title or
author. Anyone else remember them? Or remember books that had paper pages
