Subject: [Ohio-birds] New avian taxonomy
I've been thinking of recording for readers of this forum all the
changes made in the official AOU--no, no, it's the AOS now--bird
checklists which we are all to follow. If you write or talk about birds,
you have to know the ever-shifting lingo. Sheila Willis of Georgia has
done this work and shares it via the internet at
and I am glad to pass along this information. Bless her. She
concentrates on Georgia birds, but Ohio changes are pretty much alike.
She also cites the full official list of changes on full display at
. It is slow to load at 23 pages, so fetch a cup of coffee!
