Minzer, its there at the bottom. :o

Okay I added it just a minute ago. Just thought I'd get away with it.

SORRY IGGY, (don't wanna be getting on the wrong side of him now do I)

If anyone can see something else that is missing please let me know and I'll get them added. :D

re: Some Common Abbreviations
Haha, you can't trick me, I used my "find" function to check for everything with Yellow in it, hehe. Thanks for adding him, you definitely don't want to intentionally make him mad ;) I'm sure Phoebus thanks you as well!

Budgies - they are not on the list (and they are parrots, even if teensy ones)

re: Some Common Abbreviations
To tell you the truth I had also noticed but I didn't mention because Peta does a great job always, even by adding what she missed before! :D
Thanks both! ;)

re: Some Common Abbreviations
Do ya know I had forgotten this list was here. Many moons ago whenever the board used to go quiet, I would find things to add, just to keep the board moving along. There are so many things I've added that I haved missed something out off, so please if you find anything then let me know, and I'll put it right.

(peta quickly starts checking the board)

Indigo, I haven't put Budgies on there as they don't usually use initials when talking about them. This list was really meant for new parronts who may get confused when we started using initials. I agree with ya 100% that Budgies are part of the parrot family. :D

re: Some Common Abbreviations
