Both the words birdie and birdy are popular at the Morristown Golf and Country Club in Hamblen County.
You've got the golf term 'birdie' and then the 'birdy' that has wings.
A clerk at the club is known as the Bird Whisperer.
Dana Jones has been feeding mocking birds at the business for more than five years.
"Everybody enjoys it," Jones said. "Sometimes they come around and see me. They get involved. They're watching me and the birds," Jones said.
Jones puts pieces of cheese crackers and a cup of water on a post at the golf club. He then begins calling his feathered friends who fly over to enjoy their snack.
