It is particularly common in Christian- and Muslim-majority countries..Adamson is a ghost town in Pittsburg County, Oklahoma, United States.. Comprising 4 square miles, it was located between McAlester and Wilburton..The town contained 15 coal mines..One of the worst mining disasters in Oklahoma occurred at Mine No. 1 on September 4, 1914.. It began to collapse One of the miners reported a cracking sound about 3:30 P.M., and the mine workers were immediately ordered to evacuate.. Nearly all of the miners quickly ascended to the surface, but 14 were trapped at the lowest level..They were buried when the entire mine collapsed.. Neither rescue nor recovery of bodies was possible..Adán is the Spanish form of this name..In Arabic, Adam (آدم) means "made from the earth/mud/clay".. It is related to the words: adom (red), admoni (ruddy), and dam (blood)...

In Sri Lankan folklore, it is believed that the cry of this bird is an omen that portends death..
