The Pink-footed Goose record was eventually accepted by the British Columbia committee, it seems:

Thank you.

Add Thick-billed Warbler Arundinax aedon to the Main List.
In Pyle 2018 and Gibson 2018.

Pittie and Dickinson (2013) concluded that Arundinax has priority.
A 2016 article by Pittie casts doubt on this, maybe?
Jerdon’s Illustrations is remarkable, if not unique, for
combining subscription, offering it through a bookseller, printing
two versions, reprinting some parts, using different printers and
plate sources, and offering plate variants.
Libraries, and bibliophiles, re-bound separate parts primarily
because that was the norm, plus a bound volume also secured
the parts. At this stage the binders invariably discarded original
wrappers along with whatever was printed on them—occasionally
leading to erroneous bibliographic interpretations (Pittie 2009;
Dickinson 2012; Pittie & Dickinson 2013).

"...United States Fish and Wildlife Service asks that we maintain a separate US only list."
Thank you Andy. I did not know. My inner Alan Wormington, (deceased Canadian ornithologist who often took umbrage at USA-centric ABA on its blog) started quivering.

No. Arundinax was not in Jerdon's Illustrations but Madras Journal.

The ABA blog posts the "results" of the 60th Supplement. However, note that the link they provide currently directs to last year's 59th, and I haven't seen anything "officially" from the AOS website.

See the blog here: http://blog.aba.org/2019/06/aos2019.html

It seems a bit odd to me that Melanitta fusca (Velvet Scoter) appears as an entry in the 60th Supplement even though it hasn't been recorded in North America. Or if it has, I don't see any mention of it in the supplement. Maybe I'm missing something?

It's been recorded in Greenland, which is part of the AOS region.

And given the number of North American scoter (of all 3 species) reaching NW Europe, the reverse could easily be happening too: birders in Nova Scotia, Labrador, etc., should definitely have Velvet Scoter on their radar, I'd think it won't be long till they find some

Yes, I see it's been recorded in Greenland. But as it says on the NACC checklist site, "Greenland is not included in the coverage of the Seventh Edition of the Check-list, although it was included in earlier editions and will be in the next edition."

That needs updating. Greenland has been included in the AOS geographical area since the 58th supplement in 2017.

Aha. That's what I was missing. Thanks.
