A Word for Robins

From “Will Climate Get Some Respect Now?,” Nicholas Kristof, NYT:

“I was schooled in the far-reaching changes underway several years ago by Eskimos in Alaska, who told me of their amazement at seeing changes in their Arctic village — from melting permafrost to robins (for which their Inupiat language has no word), and even a (shivering) porcupine.  If we can’t see that something extraordinary is going on in the world around us, we’re in trouble.”
