Names that other countries have for this feature:
A glacial meltwater stream, 0.5 mi long, which flows from the snout of Canada Glacier in Taylor Valley, Victoria Land. It drains NE, close to the glacier, entering the W end of Lake Fryxell to the W of Bowles Creek and Green Creek. The name was suggested by Diane McKnight, USGS hydrologist working in the Lake Fryxell basin, 1987-94, and alludes to the many aeolian deposits of fine sands along the creek, indicative of strong winds blowing around the S end of Canada Glacier during the winter. Named from "They Called the Wind Maria," a song in Paint Your Wagon, the American musical play by Lerner and Loewe.
