ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Event.TYPE_BIRTHDAY seems to be missing from the API.
Workaround: Use the value "3".
I believe those values are mapped into the `Android.Provider.EventDataKind` enumeration.
## Excerpt from https://developer.xamarin.com/api/type/Android.Provider.ContactsContract+CommonDataKinds+Event/
> You can use all columns defined for ContactsContract+Data as well as
> the following aliases.
> - ContactsContract+CommonDataKinds+BaseTypes.TypeCustom. Put the
> actual type in ContactsContract+CommonDataKinds+CommonColumns.Label.
> - EventDataKind.Anniversary
> - EventDataKind.Other
> - EventDataKind.Birthday
Looking at the bindings it does look like this has been remapped to EventDataKind (which has the value of 3).
Closing this as a "feature". please reopen if you think this is incorrect.
