Looking at the trial event Ornithology list (that has been posted many times already), the ranges of the specific birds are often wide and many of them are pretty common birds throughout their ranges. This probably means the event is designed so you can see a good portion (depending on where you life/how far you are willing to travel) of the birds on the list, which makes good sense. The list is also pretty long (compared to other zoology id events with lists, like fossils and herpetology), and includes a diverse assortment of different families (and orders). If anything, we probably (hopefully) this year will have a reduction of this list instead of additions. We could very well have a very similar list with just a few changes in actual birds and a few changes in taxonomic groupings and common names.

I hope that audio will play a bigger part in Ornithology this year. Last year, for Herpetology, our coach had us listen to some frog calls, thinking that they would play a part in competition. But, at two tournaments, state, and nationals, we never needed to identify any frogs by call. Does anyone think listening to bird calls will play a major part in Ornithology?
