Banding codes are a convenient and a very, very easy-to-learn designation. My friends go back to birding in CT in the 1930s., but I say, use the banding codes. Anyone who'd like to be quaint can go back to English (Sea Pigeon, Solander Goose, Crow Duck, Creek duck, Whistler, etc.) -- have at it.
I like the banding code designations here. Steve MayoBethany

This acronym stuff is getting out of HAND. For us old timers who've been doing this since way before most of you were born, can we please speak English? Thank you.
