I believe it is a situation that arises when two or more birdwatchers think they have seen the same [individual] bird when in fact they have observed different birds. Typically there is disagreement over the identification of the bird - birder saw one feature, the other birder saw a contradictory feature.

Effectively, it is a mechanism by which disputing birders can call a truce by agreeing that they may not have been looking at the same bird.

Dear all,

If you don't ask, you'll never know! What does "a bit of 2 bird theory" mean, please?
