ᴹQ. ambale n. “yellow bird, yellow hammer” (Category: Bird (other))

ᴹQ. ambalë, n. “yellow bird, yellow hammer” (Category: Bird (other))

A word for a yellow bird in The Etymologies of the 1930s, apparently the species yellowhammer, derived from ᴹ✶asmalē as an elaboration of the root ᴹ√SMAL “yellow” (Ety/SMAL). Tolkien later changed this root to √MAL, but ammale might still be plausibly derived from that root.
