Beer and Birds

Have you ever noticed how many bird song mnemonics involve beer?

White-eyed Vireo: Chuck, pick up the beer… Quick!
Olive-sided Flycatcher: Quick! Three Beers!
Common Nighthawk: Beeer
Black-throated Blue Warbler: Beer Beer Beer Beeee
Alder Flycatcher: Free Beer!

I don’t think this says much about the birds, but it may say something about the birders.
