Bird License Plates

I have added the following license plates to the sidebar slideshow. Most of them I took at the bird festival in Great Falls earlier this month, but the Alula plate was sent to me in early April by Maggie Jones and I am now just getting around to posting it. Thanks Maggie! Here are the new plates.

Can anyone figure out what the bird connection is to the plate above?

The google says it's a Japanese White-eye. On the other hand, it could be a misspelling of the Spanish me giro - 'I turn around.' Under the circumstances... I'd go with the white-eye.

Ah Google! I should have thought of that but yes, Luisa, you are right. It is the Japanese name for the Japanese White-eye.
