The birds are different. All of them, except the pigeons. There's something that looks a little like a magpie (pica pica), but isn't. There's something that looks like a whimbrel, but isn't. There's a herring gull that isn't quite a herring gull.

The bird books are different. The helpful bookseller doesn't know which is best, but know which one sells. I have Slater. I hope it's the right one.

The trees are different, too. The coffee is different. A caf e crême is, more or less, a flat white. In Boston, flat white is a wall paint.
