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.
