    IOC combines forces w/ NACC, SACC, Cornell, and more to produce "global checklist"

    How does mangling and / or Americanising, common names, create 'trust in the experts'and why do ordinary birders, need to understand the often complex relationships between families?

    IOC combines forces w/ NACC, SACC, Cornell, and more to produce "global checklist"

Non English speakers, seem to be claiming some...

    It might be nonsensical to you, it doesn't affect your national list, names.

    Here's a piece from Birdguides. https://www.birdguides.com/news/major-step-towards-single-global-bird-taxonomy-announced/ How do we interpret this... Although English names for species will be drawn primarily from the IOC World Bird List, modifications to better align with preferences of...
