Oh, they're the same bird? Well, that saves me some work.

I color code tabs, write page numbers, and use symbols.
What kinds of symbols and what for?

I just heard this bird outside my window (it's about eleven at night where I am) and I know it's not a Great Horned Owl and it may not be a bird on the list whose call we have to know, but I'm wondering if anyone knows it. It's like 3 almost hooting sounds but they're separate, distinct from one another. I don't really like that description since it kinda makes it still sound like a Great Horned Owl, but trust me it wasn't. I don't know how else to describe it though

^ Interested to know which symbols, as well. I now color code to mark conservation status. Really easy and fast, if I must say.

How are you guys studying? I know that's a stupid question to ask, but I just spent two hours on Quizlet today. Whooo, was that fun.

Do you make your own flashcards on quizlet? If not, what page are you using?

Right now, I'm looking up the number of eggs in the clutches of each type of bird, and I'm getting some different results... how should I sort them out?

thats the thing... :?
different proctors go by the different numbers,
during the summer ( i was BORED!!!) was went through all my orno books and compared them and averaged them... but, i just go with whatever and hope for the best.. no one has the same number...
you could just check two sources and if they are close then thats what you go with.. idk. its annoying. :| :( :x

For the conservation status, would using Wikipedia be a reliable source?

it kinda matches most of my field guides.
but try allaboutbirds.org
or if you need to, try http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/ent ... :Main_Page
because it is slightly more reliable then wikipedia, though wikipedia is typically pretty close.
