For those of you that are using the AviSys Birding
Software you are aware of the banding code feature.
AviSys uses the rules that banders are using except if
a species ends up with the same code them both species
are listed in a scroll-down. One does not have to
deal with BTYW and BTLH etc. Just use BTGW and BTHU
(Black-throated Gray Warbler and Broad-tailed
Hummingbird). Just click on the species you want and
you are taken there immediately in the ABA list or
world list or any other list you may have generated.
Of the nearly 10,000 species of birds in the world 57%
of the time one goes directly to the bird. 43% of the
time you will select a bird from a collision list of 2
to 13 species but averaging only 3. In North American
mode you get directly to the bird 80% of the time.
Birds shoplifting may be funny some of the time.
While in Australia a pelican was doing the same trick
at a fish and chips joint. We were trying to get in
the door past the pelican. The pelican reached out
with its bill and cut a four inch slice on my forearm.
Pelicans have a razor shape hook on the end of their
bill. Birds can become pests.
