Our efforts continue with updating the passerine splits derived from Volume 2 of the Illustrated Checklist, both the original “mother” species and the resulting “daughter” species.
month we completed all “new species” (resulting from splits) of
Hylocitreidae (Hylocitreas) and some of the next families under way
include Malaconotidae (Bush-shrikes), Monarchidae (Monarch-flycatchers),
Corvidae (Crows and Jays), Remizidae (Penduline-tits), Hirundinidae
(Swallows and Martins), Pellorneidae (Ground Babblers) and Polioptilidae
(Gnatcatchers). We also continue to add multimedia links to the
completed “new species”, with the family Pycnonotidae (Bulbuls) finished
and the families Monarchidae (Monarch-flycatchers), Corvidae (Crows and
Jays), Hirundinidae (Swallows and Martins) and Cisticolidae (Cisticolas
and allies) being processed now.
Here are four examples to browse:
