  1. Thanks for the lists. You did lot of work. But never heard of your word muicle for hummingbird. Could not find it in my dictionaries. Also “Galen de noche” as yesterday; today, tomorrow seems odd. Possible misspelling of grove–arboleda not arboleta.
    Hope l do not sound picky. I do appreciate your work.

    • Actually muicle is honeysuckle and I fixed this problem as well. You are right about grove as well. A vocabulary entry related to time doesn’t belong on this list so I just deleted it. Thanks for the help. If you catch any other errors then let me know. I am a one man show and don’t make any money from this site. I do my best but it helps to have a second pair of eyes look over my stuff! Thanks again!
