3. Glossary

Because the selection of good names is so important, let's start by defining some terms, and also discussing some terms that are problematic.

3.1. Count

This is a highly problematic term. It may refer to: the entire institution of the CBC; only those circles counted within a given year; only one circle counted in one year; or the number of birds of a given kind. Consequently, the use of this term without abundant context is discouraged.
