Read a feature in the Observer about a new book ‘How To Be A Bad Birdwatcher’ where the journo writes:

“there is an enticing lexicon of birdwatching terminology to learn…most importantly ‘the jizz’. This ‘is the art of seeing a bird badly and still knowing what it is. Jizz is the key. Jizz is the beginning of understanding’”.

Is the author taking the piss or are there really jizz-obsessed birdwatchers repeating in a Zen-like way “jizz is the key”? Twitchers, please tell us!

Sounds like toss to me... :wink:

Actually I'm a bit of a twitcher (don't say, yes that'll be the "twit" bit...). My back garden is festooned with bird tables, feeders, etc for those relaxing non rock n roll moments...

So that's why you have those gigantic binoculars - so as not to frighten the birds off when an exciting jizz moment pops up...?

Johnny A, you would love Cage and Aviary bird magazine, it's full of talk of tits and cocks and seed and I've never been able to work out whether they're having a laugh with their headlines and captions or not, (though having worked in the office next door to them for a time I'd say not.) My all-time favourite was a pic of Mr Whateverhisnamewas who'd won first prize for 'best cock in show' :D
