In today’s show you misidentified the pintail duck as a Smee. It’s actually spelled Smew. Love your show.

You say Smew and we say Smee! We are all correct.  There are two names for the pintail — both Smee and Smew.  This came from a round of “crossed words” in honor of Will Shortz and the 75th Anniversary of the NYT Crossword puzzle.
