Re: Common Forum Acronyms/ Abbreviations

Lots of them I see for the first time and I have a question about LBC2 and LC2. No one say long billed corella cockatoo (or little corella cockatoo) but long billed cockatoo OR corella so I'm not sure if the aconym is correct. I was trying to find something which I know and there isn't but I'm not able I knew a hiacynth macaw as HAM but maybe I was wrong...

Re: Common Forum Acronyms/ Abbreviations

We want to give credit where it is due, and weco started an awesome thread like this a few years ago. We just decided to build on his and add in ones that have become more common since his was posted. A huge thanks goes out to him for having this idea and many came from his thread

Re: Common Forum Acronyms/ Abbreviations

Thanks for this Terry! I was unfamiliar with a lot of these abbreviations when i first joined up so I when I saw the term U2 for the first time I thought they were talking about that band from Ireland

Your favourite Aussie niece however is feeling a bit left out. Can we add PCL to the list or is she just too rare and obscure??

I included the two cockatoos because they were listed on a cockatoo page as acronyms for them. They may not be commonly used but decided to include them just in case.
I haven't seen HAM short for Hyacinth, but can add it if you are more familiar with that

Re: Common Forum Acronyms/ Abbreviations

I'll add one thing which many people don't know - nearby everybody who says that has a white capped pionus, in real it is white crowned pionus. They are two different species: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White-crowned_parrot and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White-capped_parrot I don't mean to change the name in the list, don't do it, you can only add as a synonym if you want but "white crowned pionus" isn't really used despite it's more correct
