Never mind Peter ... I'm pretty sure in my formative birding years (early 80s) I tentatively identified a Spotted Turtledove as a Wompoo Pigeon in the outer eastern 'burbs of Melbourne - fortunately there was no internet then, I didn't really know any birders at that point, and thus I didn't share my joy with the rest of the world.
It takes time and practice to build up your skills and knowledge base. I have to admit I got a laugh out of Tony's post but don't be put off!
Your new philosophy will stand you in good stead, by the way.
