It's probably will be mostly vagrant seabirds/Alaskan Strays/Stuff from Mexico and the Caribbean that have appeared since the last edition, alongside whatever taxonomic splits that occurred up to 2016. I have the book on order but it should arrive Thursday, so I can maybe give you a better sense then.
Yea I figured they would mostly be splits. Just trying to update my bird log on which ones have branched out without having to dig through all the old aba supplements. Just from flipping through it a little I noticed the western scrub jay split but haven't had enough time to go through the whole thing.

I flipped through last night, and I too can't really recall all the splits that have happened since the last guide. The Scrub-Jay certainly stood out, as did Mexican Violetear. I think the Scripp's/Guadalupe Murrelet split is also new for the book

I think the Violeteater is part of the Green Violetear split that gave us Lesser Violetear in Costa Rica.
