In the ship’s library on the cruise just completed, Laetitia ran across the penduline tits in an ornithology book and decided it would make a good limerick. The penduline tits are a subgroup of the titmouse family who are distinguished by their hanging nests. It inspired some limericks. This is the first.
So say ornithological writs
The subfam’ly of penduline tits
Whose identity rests
On their pendulous nests
Into the titmouse fam’ly well fits.
