Gosh, I hope they always give us color pictures... Once at regionals for Amph & Rep, the procotor gave us black and white ones.

It'd be really hard to tell some of the birds apart if it weren't for coloration. (Of course, I know color isn't a very good thing to base most identifications off of because of lighting and constrast and color quality and all that, but it's a good place to start an identification...)

Does anybody know if they are going to allow student prepared binders this year? I think I would like that more than the field guides with added notes.
When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.

Yeah but it's getting irritating because it's been posted about 20 times.
