N.I WWII One for the scholars. (Apologies to Caubeen)

The old badge of Northern Ireland District circa WWII was a bird sitting in a nest on a green background.

I was once told that there's a very funny joke attached to this if you have knowledge of ancient Greek or Latin (can't remember which). I do recall that said joke was related to me and it was, actually, quite funny in an "in joke-y" fashion. I'm buggered if I can remember what it was, or even the gist of it though...

Any ideas?
