  1. Oh My! What do you say when that happens! Yikes! Very truly a novice!

  2. It's like a BCNH but not. I woefully remember the I-became-a-birder-yesterday days I called a Pygmy Nuthatch a Loggerhead Shrike just because of the dark eye stripe. Ouch.

  3. On the plus side, the foot really added something.
