Birder slang can also be very regionalized, something we probably
didn't think much about in pre-Internet days.  I live about an hour
north of your state, have been birding all over the country for 50
years, and had never heard the term zootie until I subscribed to this
list.  I think fluddle must be a St. Louis area term because a Chicago
friend who grew up around St. Louis uses it.  I think these are
temporary pools of water that form after a hard rain, something akin
to our sheet water standing in farm fields.  Right?  Looking forward
to the "official" definition <g>.
