Multiple sightings in one message

aggregate sightings from a single location into a single chirp... maybe include a MS (multiple species) option, where each species is separated by a comma... so

MS "Black-throated Blue Warbler, Chestnut-sided Warbler, Cape May Warbler, Blue Grosbeak" L "location"

I guess you'll run into space limitations, but if only the first 140 characters were in the chirp (and passed onto Twitter) and the rest were moved into the expanded description on ChirpTracker (and that was hotlinked in Twitter), it might work. Alternatively you could allow for 6-char or 4-car species codes such as "WEWA" or "WOEAWA" for worm-eating warbler.
