Subject: RE: Lyr Req: One Eyed Cormorant (Pete McNab)
I don't get the etymological meaning of all this, but there seems to be some ornithological punning going on.

Here's Wikipedia's article about the Guanay Cormorant, also known as the Guanay Shag, Phalacrocorax bougainvillii, which lives along the coast of Peru and Chile.

I'm guessing that "Guanay" is pronounced something like "one-eye".
