Salty has a few nicknames;
Salty Boy
Crazy Bird
Saltzicht (made up German, its not really a word)
Buddy
Hoover or Electrolux (2 popular vacuum cleaners, because he sucks up treats like one)
Since you like German how about saltmister.
The baby Robin we rescued back in the mid 60’s we called.
um I have to do the best I can in spelling German.
smutsiga (dirty) and fogel (bird) said all together (the way Germans love to make words run togethe)
Feeding the bird worms (from fish bait stores) led to nasty poops hence the name,

All my birds have the same nickname......chirpers.

I just say "hey chirpers"...... so much so, the gcc says chirp in english instead of chirping for real sometimes.
