Janelle Shane, who has trained neural nets to generate entertainingly semi-plausible names for all sorts of things (Pokémon, Star Wars characters, etc), posted a new list about a month ago: bird names. But this time, most of the names weren’t much weirder than real names of bird species.
Still, I enjoyed them. A few I particularly liked:
- Slaty White-throated Fairy-bellied Ground-Tyrant
- Ecuadorian Strange-tailed Cuckoo
- Unicolored Painted Blue-cowled White-browed Cave-Magpie
- African White-capped Hocky Owl
