Just as a point of clarification -- the actual 58th supplement to the check-list hasn't been published yet; it's supposed to go online on Thursday, July 6. The link helpfully provided by Bill Whan goes to a blog post by Rick Wright, about some (but not all) of the changes to be included in the supplement. Rick's article is interesting and well-written, as usual, but it doesn't quite cover all the new information, even in regard to bird species found in Ohio. The supplement itself, and some summaries of it written for general audiences, should be available in a couple of days. In the meantime, Rick's blog post hits most of the highlights.
