Snake Fingers Posted February 21 Share Posted February 21 Yesterday: an American Goldfinch I heard singing, first time I IDed one singing. The only reason I recognized it right away was: I was wondering if it really sounded like “potato chips”, so I listened to it(it doesn’t IMO) and thus my subconscious learned a song.I recognized it as “oh that one bird… wait it’s that one bird that doesn’t sound like potato chips… that one bird is a AMGO! Is there a term for say: looking in a field guide, seeing a WBNU in it, then seeing a WBNU a few weeks later, and you know immediately that’s a WBNU.? If there isn’t there should be. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
