Personally, I would wait for the list to come out before I started learning stuff.
But that's just me.
Actually, I would probably start learning the basics on birds, but I would wait until I got the list before I went into specific birds.
same here. :D

maybe its old, but its bound to have at least one bird thats going to be on this year's right? i mean, i take it like the fossils list...it wont change that much over the years...but thats just me... :)

you could still study bird anatomy and stuff....id like to see the day when that changes (though of course you might say we might not have to know it but w/e... :D )

I know that the 1995 A+R list was three pages, last year's list was two, and this years list was one.
So my guess is that thier going to cut at least parts of the 1998's bird list out, but its still a really good starting point.

My advice would be: start birdwatching / getting used to the sounds around your neighborhood, go to the library, and start memorizing the ids you think are going to be on this years list.
