That's not as silly as it sounds, if the client did actually see the bird but 
wasn't able to identify it, and was just making sure Tim was certain of the id. 

My OBP tick wouldn't be a tick if there hadn't been an expert there to tell me 
it wasn't a Blue-wing. Normally I'd want to id it myself, but I figure there 
aren't going to be many chances to try again, and it's not that much different 
to taking a photo and asking an expert later.
