Only partly a name issue

And now for something a little lighter.  With the recent eBird announcements came the news that you can no longer tick ‘Red Junglefowl’ at the You yangs picnic area. That category is confined to real junglefowl in their traditional haunts, geographically.  You might, subject to certain conditions, be able to submit a valid tick for a ‘Red Junglefowl (Domestic Type)’.  However, and this is the important news, for backyard tickers in Australia, ‘… do not report pet chickens (even ‘free range’ birds that return to coops at night). …  Only   report birds that have truly gone feral …’


Sadly, there is no ruling on whether you can count truly feral Red Junglefowl  chickens before they hatch.
