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.
