Re: The Papers That Ate Cincinnati

Spanish does have the word *ave* (plural *aves*)

I've seen it in Portuguese, too, e. g. on the cover of a journal that Clarke & Gauthier put (with many others) into a slide of their talk at the 1st PhyloCode meeting to show how commonly the name Aves is used by neontologists.

Googling for "uma ave" brings 199,000 results; of the first 10, however, most are a poem or song text, and one is about a charadriiform and mentions "Aves/pássaros (Birds)".

but it's used, IIRC, for your bigger, less songbirdy
types of birds.
