I know I'm showing my age, but I wonder why it's becoming fashionable to
use what I'm told is bird-banders code to refer to bird names. Yes, I'm
sure I could find a web site that lists the code. Yes, I'm sure, with
effort, I can de-code the birds' names without a deciphering book.
But in my view the code impedes communication and I wish people would cease
using it in everyday communications. Like messages to Carolinabirds.
