Hmm... How it's going? Former Sylvia cantillans moltonii is now Curruca subalpina, Moltoni's Warbler? And Sylvia cantillans cantillans is now Curruca cantillans, Eastern Subalpine Warbler? I'm little bit confuse...

There's a summary in a post on the taxonomy forum. Basically there are now 3 species and thanks to the wonderful rules of taxonomy the species name "subalpina" now applies to the only one of the 3 that isn't called "subalpine" in English.

IOC made the split on 6 May, see their updates diary entry.

Doesn't affect me as I've never seen any of them...

Thank you. So my Subalpine change to Eastern Subalpine (albostriata). But no new ticks.

Did my belated birthday big day today, with 82 species seen. Migrant levels were abysmal, with a lot of "expected" migrants completely absent. I had 15 species of warbler over almost 12 hours, in two of the best migrant hotspots in the state. Last weekend I managed 12 species of warbler in 3 hours, at just a couple of local spots.

BUT...I finally was able to see Connecticut Warbler, the last "northern" parulid I needed for my life list, and a major target for the spring. Nice to finally connect with this bird without having to fend off a horde of mosquitos in some bog!

Semipalmated Sandpiper, went out looking for a Red-necked Phalarope but wasn't able to find it, so that was my compensation price.

Arctic Warbler in Merikarvia Finland. Unfortunately it stayed in hide and we just heard it singing.

LeConte's Sparrow, after living along its migration route for 21 years without so much as hearing it. Worst (best?) nemesis bird I have ever had. Last year we even drove to North Dakota over Memorial Day to find one, and got skunked. That is when I wrote a poem to it and acknowledged its utter mastery over our lives. That did the trick, apparently.

When we did get it, we had just crossed paths, up in Sax-Zim Bog, with Bruce Beehler, co-author of the PNG field guide, who trudged out into the grass with us and helped us finally find one.

Say's Phoebe in Oregon. These probably aren't special, but I only started my life list this year.
