Would you rather hear of a MacGillivray's Warbler and find an Orange  
Crowned Warbler,
OR
hear of an Orange Crowned Warbler and find out later it was really a  
MacGillivray's Warbler?

better safe than sorry
slow and steady wins the race
a stitch in time saves nine
look before you leap
a watched pot never boils
a penny saved is a penny earned
