4-letter codes (Am. Birding Assn. surely has their own.... but they only
deal with 'full' species. The Bird Banding Lab has codes for the 'common'
subspecies/types - Audubon's and Myrtle Warblers, Oregon & Slate-colored
Juncos, etc.): "Taxonomic revisions by the AOU have resulted in many
changes in bird classification over the past several decades. The Banding
Offices acknowledge these changes and uses the common names and species
numbers assigned by the AOU. However, we have maintained the common names
and species numbers where the AOU has combined formerly acknowledged
species. For some of these species, there is an "unidentified" category, to
be used ONLY FOR TRULY UNIDENTIFIABLE OR INTERGRADE INDIVIDUALS --- not in
place of subspecific designation. The taxa for which we have included
formerly recognized species are: Townsend's Shearwater, Green-winged Teal,
Snow Goose, Canada Goose, Brant, Tundra Swan, Great Blue Heron, Red-tailed
Hawk, Northern Flicker, Savannah Sparrow, Seaside Sparrow, White-crowned
Sparrow, Dark-eyed Junco, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Palm Warbler, and Tufted
Titmouse." http://www.pwrc.usgs.gov/BBL/manual/bandsize.htm Their entire
species table sorted by alpha code is at
www.pwrc.usgs.gov/BBL/manual/aspeclst.htm Hope this helps, Jon. Anderson
