It is important to note that the entire bird doesn’t represent the political map of North America. The dark blue potion represents water bodies; the blue portion of the wing is the North Atlantic Ocean and the blue pattern below the wing is The Great Lakes.

Okay so now let’s label the bird to remember the various countries.

 

 

  • The bust and the lower wing design of the bird will give you Canada.
  • The upper wing design is Greenland.
  • The body is United States of America
  • The leg is Mexico.

 

 

The claw is Central America which can be remembered from this simple mnemonic.

Both errant and aberrant mean deviating or straying from the normal course. Errant, more specifically, can just mean wandering or straying. Errant and aberrant come from the same root. If we add the negative prefix in- to that root, we get inerrant which means free from errors. Inerrant should have meant not wandering etymologically but language is not mathematics. Anyways I hope you got the idea.
