43. They were both born and raised within two counties of the office
(Cough, cough, Fresno, cough, Stockton, cough... Damn, the air quality must be bad today! x( )

Having both tried to rehabilitate and having dissected a loon, boy... I'm surprised they got anywhere NEAR eating that thing. The worst thing I have ever smelled in my WHOLE LIFE--worse than the dog rolling in a dead salmon by the river--was loon shit. Good GOD. I seem to recall actually tearing up because the smell was so bad. And though loons and grebes aren't the same :P, the day the freezer broke down with a dead grebe in it was one of the more memorable days of my life.

As far as identification goes, I'd guess that if you were somewhat familiar with the species of one area, you'd at least have a starting place for identifying species of another area. Like, you'd probably be able to look at a little yellow bird and guess that it was a finch as opposed to a warbler or a vireo or something. And at the very least, you'd know where to start looking in the field guide, instead of flipping randomly through the wrens or thrushes or something. :P
