Haiku

birdwatching class -
the students all mimic
the great tit

(the great tit call, for those who aren't familiar with it, is 'teacher, teacher'. Or rather the main call, as this species has a very large number of different calls!).

'Students'; in the birdwatching class; 'teacher teacher'.
___The call of the 'tit' becomes the leader of the birdwatching class. Nifty Juliete_! _m

One of my favorite birds...though it is hard to explain the name to children without them laughing!
