I don't know about Louisiana, but Picone may have trouble sorting out the

distribution of Cardinal and Redbird if it's anything like it was in the

Louisville area in the 40's and 50's. Cardinal was the fancy ('official')

term; Redbird was the ordinary term; and the old-fashioned ('full') form was

Cardinal Redbird.

I remember quite a few of these standard+local combinations (although there

was no 'dragonfly snake doctor'). Does anybody have others?
