The Hermit-Thrush may be a real bird , But the bird they learned 
about at camp would have been Wapomeo which is also the name of the 
camp. I just happen to work at this camp with Anna Plasket. The word 
really means " laughing bird" or " happy place" It's an old indian 
word. I don't know what band/language it's from. But it's not the 
name of those four hipsters band (three of which attended the camp)
