Let's see if we can think up birds names that begin with each letter of the alpabet <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

I'll start with A

A is for Albatross <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Hmmm...I sure picked a bad time to jump into this thread..XXXX

With help from my trusty field guide, I found..
Xanthocephalus zanthocephalus

***more commonly known as Yellow-headed blackbird**

So does that cover X and Y ?? (somebody else can try for the ZZZZ).. <img src="/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

Zosterops japonicus
also from the Latin

It's a common sight in Japan and China.
I love the translation of its Chinese name:
'dark green embroidered eye bird'
sounds so much prettier than white-eye

OOPS!! What the heck happened there!? When I was reading the posts in this game, all that appeared on my screen was up to *O*. By the time I posted my *P*, I saw entries down to *Y*!!!

You guys are FAST!!!!!

I'm a newbie here so it'll take me a bit of time to get used to this board.

That's my excu <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> se and I'm sticking to it!! ;-)

I'll start with the American Avocet , a "large, handsome, and gregarious shorebird that commonly feeds and rests in flocks of up to several hundred." Although I may have seen this bird on one of my trips to the Atlantic Coast, I've yet to make a positive ID.

X is for the elusive Xema sabini, probably better known to you as Sabine's Gull. Larger than a Little Gull and smaller than a Black-legged Kittiwake, this gull breeds in High Arctic, and is highly pelagic in migration. (Of course I'm sure you all knew this already, lol.)
