    Text - Tessa Dare @TessaDare My friend's 5-year-old just sawa crow and called it a "Halloween eagle." And a child shall lead us. It is known. This is the new name for the bird-formally-known-as-crow. You know what to do, @MerriamWebster 1:13 AM - May 30, 2018 19.2K 4,396 people are talking about this

    Text - Erin Rooney Doland @erdoland Replying to @TessaDare @MerriamWebster As a toddler, my son was king of properly renaming things.
