Is there any where on this forum or elsewhere on the web that identifies what all these initials in the posts mean? I just realized CAG means Congo African Grey, but what about all the others?
We are close to being even on species of birds.DYHBFTiels

Yes, GCC is Green Cheeked Conure and not Golden Capped Conure.
Over time I have run into several different lists of this nature and none of them are perfect in this regard, but I have noticed that sometimes there are 2 or more species of parrots sharing the same abbreviation, sometimes the ones used seems to depend on what birds are the more commonly kept in a give region. The thing is that I was just trying to give a sense of what most of them are. It is the best that I know how to do on this, although I guess that I could post more than one link to these lists. If you want more lists I will provide a couple more.
The list is good. I think people will figure out how things are used on this board, but it might be worth a sticky post somewhere, by someone who can do such things, with a list of abbreviations how they are used here. I saw something about a U2 flying, and thought it was a cold war post!
