Whadda ya call a reverse snowbird?

It's no secret that we here in the southern half of the country refer to those who come down from the beautiful northern half to enjoy the sunny southern half every winter "snowbirds." So what do people in the beautiful north call those of us from the sunny south who come there to cool down in summers?

Snowbirds go north for the summer, so I guess you're a snowbird, too.

After all the terrible things I've said about snowbirds over the decades, that just don't seem right! 😎

I still say they're both Snowbirds- the reason for the seasonal migration from north to south to north to south is that their Plumage (see below) can only tolerate temps in the mid-seventies to mid-eighties.
