Ah, right, I was going to comment on yesterday's (#72). The ones where two birds would otherwise share the same code (e.g. Heermann's Gull and Herring Gull), requiring a special code for each (HEEG and HERG), are a bit trickier without looking at a list of banding codes (rather than a field guide). I was trying to figure out which egret fit.

I did the same thing yesterday. I thought I had ruled Gulls out of the equation when the U didn't fit. When I couldn't figure out an Egret that fit with iBird's list, I resorted to the banding code list and sorted through it until I found something that ended with EEG. Getting the last two letters first gave me tunnel vision on that one.

That explains why I got stumped. I also narrowed it down to only one vowel option (E) and ending with G and then spent quite some time scrolling Merlin trying to find anything that made sense.

Not only do I not know what this is, it's not on the official ABA checklist they say is used for the solutions. I'm baffled.

Having now looked this up I would very highly recommend reading through the description in the first BC checklist to include this species, at least the last paragraph.
