Well, I also love this example. As young ornithologist I learnt to identify
several species of birds because they sing its own name. So, "Emberiza calandra"
sings "tri, tri, tri...guero", its Spanish common name (Triguero=wheat eater).
I suppose an adequate new key would be:
Bird sings its own SPANISH name
Bird sings its own ENGLISH name
