Re: Abbreviations

Do you mean "bird talk"...CAG=Congo African Grey, DYH=Double Yellow Head Amazon, B&G= Blue & Gold Macaw, M2=Moluccan Cockatoo, etc,? Or do you mean "computerese"..LMAO, IMO, FYI, etc,? You'll get used to it.

Re: Abbreviations

I've got computerese down, still working on bird talk, lol. I sometimes think someone is talking about a cockatoo, when they are talking about a conure. Glad most everyone has their parrots listed in their profile so it comes through on the post header
