Hi all 😁 Today’s Animal in Scots is Cockieleerie — Cock.
All the Scots words for these posts are taken from The Concise English-Scots Dictionary, by the Scottish National Dictionary Association. The words chosen will be the generally accepted term, but as in all languages there are regional variations, as well as sub-species variations. For example, an owl is generally known as a hoolet in Scots, but an ool in Shetland & the NE. A barn owl is a white hoolet & a long eared owl, a hornnie hoolet.
Hae a guid day 😁

Oh, no! In American English, “horny” is the British equivalent to “randy” shall we say? That means your last owl is looking for a partner! LOL
Horny means the same over here as well 😂
I wasn’t sure. LOL
