Oh, sorry: that was the format that one uses when interactively adding a
field to a bbdb entry. Here is a line from the bbdb file:

["First" "Last" nil nil (["Home" 212 555 1212 0] ["Mobile" 212 5555 1212 0]) (["Home" ("1 First St") "Anytown" "MA" "01234" "USA"]) ("foo@bar.com") ((creation-date . "2009-02-05") (timestamp . "2009-02-26") (anniversary . "1976-02-26 birthday\n1993-02-27 wedding")) nil]

This one includes two anniversaries (a birthday and a wedding anniversary).
For just a birthday it would look like this:

....(anniversary . "1976-02-26 birthday")

HTH,
Nick
