τριζόνι (trizOni) -- I thought it was some kind of bird, but clearly not-- it's a cricket. Cricket is also called γρύλος, and a few google searches have given no evidence that the synonyms refer to different subspecies of cricket. I was reminded to look up the word when fellow Greece Seminar prof Christopher Bakken posted this song (which I've loved for many years)
