Thanks to Doak for the title of this entry as well as the question.
"Besides the eagle, the dove, and the turkey, seven kinds of birds are mentioned in 1776. . we're not counting 'gulled' but one of the seven is part of an adjective phrase. five are spoken; two are sung. (And don't include 'eaglet' either, since the adult's already been counted.) What are they?
On another note, here is yesterday's question:
"There is something peculiar about the opening notes of 'He plays the violin'-the notes that accompany the first four words, the words in the title. What is it?"
