Kaiser, love the walk-through. Somehow the row labels (birds) got jumbled in the penultimate step.


Doug: thanks for the note. It's now fixed.


I was waiting for the reordering stage :-) very useful. But let's give credit where it's due, that's famously a thing that comes from the great Jacques Bertin. The colours and grid thinning are more Tufte.


I forgot to say, you can re-order the rows, too, and put some popular seed columns on the right instead of the left, by virtue of being popular with different birds.

I wrote a couple of pieces on my blog a few years ago, about reorderable tables in Excel
