Bird Christmas Carols

Those who know me well, know that I occasionally like to use puns. Because of my experiences as an avian biologist, many of my puns involve birds. I’ve posted in the past about things like honey nut vireos, little grouse on the prairie, and victorious egrets.  Because Christmas is this Sunday, I decided to re-write the titles of some famous Christmas carols with a birdy twist. Feel free to smile, roll your eyes, shake your head, or groan. Don’t worry, I’ll be posting about fun animals again soon!
