Bluebirds, thought that would have been obvious given the context
[birds checking out House Wren nest box] & Pat's message mentioning
Bluebirds, apologize if not.

I don't use "codes" 99.999% of the time, but when i do i also use the
full name. I do have some eccentric abbrev that i will sometimes use,
e.g. BB for Bluebirds is what i would use in field notes during counts
as well as BE for Bald Eagle. Those sometimes make it into Maryland &
DC Birding when the usage would seem to me not to pose a puzzle.
