Blue-grey Noddy - BirdForum Opus

This is a disambiguation page. A number of articles are associated with the title Blue-grey Noddy.
NOTE: If an internal link referred you to this page, you may wish to change the link to point directly to the intended article.

The Blue Noddy Procelsterna cerulea and the Grey Noddy Procelsterna albivitta are recognised as separate species by Dickinson2 and Clements1; Sibley & Monroe3 treated them as conspecific under the English name Blue-grey Noddy.
To add more confusion Clements has changed the name of Procelsterna cerulea to Blue-grey Noddy.
