Ha, for sure Bob, I spent lots of time waiting for a flight, and when one did he was gone like a bullet!

Thanks Blake. For your next winter vacation, head to Cape Coral, Florida, and you'll see where I found them :) It's an amazing place. Also found TWO Great Horned Owl families in pine trees on the same Cape Coral street, a matter of 6 blocks apart.

Ha, thanks Rog. A couple of groups have created 4-letter short form terms for birds. So, BUOW for Burrowing Owl.

There's a lot of rules though! If the name is two unhyphenated words, the code is the first two letters of each word.

MODO Mourning Dove
AMRO American Robin

Here's a link to the explanations: https://www.carolinabi​rdclub.org/bandcodes.h​tml (external link)

Oh, and thanks for the comments on the pic! :) The short forms are very birdy though, and kinda too much for me, in truth.
