This gull chart is basically 1 + 1, it's a way to get our foot in the door. Some of the experts up here if you want us to go straight to chapter 8 with complex equations. I remember struggling with sparrows when I first started, my lack of understanding then seems a bit silly to me now. I now have that same learning curve with gulls.
To say this chart is unhelpful I find is dismissive to novice birders who are trying to learn. There are many amazingly considerate individuals here who encourage us to learn. Honestly, there are a few others here that take the fun out of it for me, I know I make mistakes and foibles but that's part of learning.
I and a few of my friends want to use this this great resource of obol to continue to learn, a very good friend of mine will not post here because of some discouraging comments.
