Why yellow?  Obviously there's a pun I'm missing.

The {qa'rol} is only mentioned in the definition of {notqa'}:  "a large, 
black bird (nowhere near as large as a {qa'rol}, which is really 
big)."  Since the parenthetical comment modifies "large, black bird", it 
implies that the {qa'rol} is another type of black bird, much larger than 
the {notqa'}.  I wonder if there was a previous entry for {qa'rol} which 
was omitted.
