Also agreed. Someone could easily mis-interpret one's being an EBSO (efficient 
birding system observer) as being an EBSO (elitist birding show-off) instead.
Thanks for the vocabulary addition, Jim!

I agree. I would rather hear about robins than about AMROs. Besides, CAGO means 
“I poop” in Spanish.

I certainly understand the desire to use the abbreviations for our birds, 
especially when they are fairly obvious DCCO, but I have to tell you I think 
this is a good way to turn people off.

that's a good place to see EABL and CHSP - on an asphalt path from one of the 
lakes to the parking lot. Other than that there were some TUTI and a few RBWP 
and DOWP.
