If this was wheel of fortune I’d say they couldn’t afford a vowel. Maybe the Italians or Spanish bought all the vowels?

What were the influences that necessitated the different sounds? Distances, atmospheric pressure, humidity?

The funny thing about elephants is that, when they go downhill they're too heavy to stop themselves from picking up speed quickly, and they can't slow down until they get to level ground (which is why people often panic when they see elephants coming downhill, because it looks like it's charging at you).

With the mild weather since mid December the birds have had many sources for food. Saturday a winter storm arrived with a heavy wet snow which coated the forest.
Our feeders came alive with species we hadn't seen for weeks.
Three suet and three seed feeders were emptied in about four hours.
Downey, Hairy and Red bellied woodpeckers toghether with Red breasted and White breasted nuthatches teamed up to empty the suet. Once they acompolished that they all moved onto the sunflower feeders.
There was some discussion between the Downey and the Goldfinch. The Downey made an offer the Goldfinch couldn’t refuse.
