British bird names

I am a starter level bird watcher in the UK and I am thrilled with the app. I wonder if you might consider adding British names to your descriptions? For example - Brent Goose along with Brant, Slavonian Grebe along with Eared Grebe, and Guillemot with Murre.

The bird taxonomy follows the Clemens checklist, which doesn't use alternative names. Perhaps you could write directly to eBird by clicking the Email Us button in the blue box at right.
