Thanks for the link, Charlene. It's an excellent essay. I like the Pete Dunne quote:
from his 2003 book titled, Pete Dunne on Bird Watching: The How-to, Where-to, and When-to of Birding.
“The difference between a beginning birder and an experienced one is that beginning birders have misidentified few birds. Experienced birders have misidentified thousands.”
