To All, 

We here in Albury have nicknames for the birds we see. (You can guess) 


Spoon man



Blood bum Parrots

There are many more... I believe that names like this are just easier to use
amongst familiar colleages however, it seems obvious that there is a need
for not only international scientific (based on Linnaeus)  names but also
formal common names. 

Also, anyone reading this that has info on Brolgas in Victoria or NSW at
this time of year could they please email us. Thanks.
