Glad to finally see the back of Deignan's Babbler and Hoogerwerf's Pheasant!

And two more armchair owls... nice.

I've done very badly out of this compared to last time! Just 2 armchairs for me (out of 14 additions and 2 lumps) so quite a drop in %

Not sure if anyone has linked this re the Prinias, apologies if so.

Six for me, but I'm still trying to recover from the Great African White-eye Massacre of 9.1!

I note that Sunda Owlet has been done on vocals alone, I wonder what genetics would say?

Is there a handy list of all the changes together?

PS @ Ian - please don't delete the close quote markup when part quoting someone, it messes up the system for further replies! (I've put it back in on the quote above here )

Not all together, but these three pages will give you the important stuff.

A quick look at the IOC website shows that 10.1 has been published this evening. One of the Excel spreadsheets has the updates in red!. Hope this is more helpful that having to trawl through three files?!

How big does your world list have to be to get six species from this kind of upgrade? I have never even heard of most of the species ....

For me this brings one funny armchair tick: I have seen plenty of Eastern black-eared wheatears in Israel and around, but actually only one Western ever, which also happens to be the only black-eared wheatear ever seen in the Czech Republic. I wasn't the finder, but I have the honor to be basically the first to definitively prove the ID.

Thanks! 3 world armchair ticks (Hudsonian Whimbrel in California, Maghreb Owl in Morocco, Eastern Black-eared Wheatear in Bulgaria & Turkey) it is for me, nothing else I'd missed.

Next up I hope, split Common and Mew Gulls, long overdue; and Common & Red Crossbills (Old World Loxia curvirostra, New World L. minor).

Three armchair ticks for me: Hudsonian Whimbrel (USA), West African Crested Tern (Senegal), and Eastern Black-eared Wheatear (Djibouti).

Having been through the Prinia splits, I find I'm actually up 8 This update was pretty generous for me, as it wasn't very Neotropics-heavy.

Is there a biogeographical explanation for the weird distribution of Deignan’s Prinia, Java+Thailand-ish and nothing in between?

Just speculation, but when the Greater Sundas were joined to mainland SE Asia, there was a band of dry forest running down to what is now Java, which presumably explains some of the odd distributions of species that are found in Indochina and Java but not Sumatra or the Malay peninsula.

Just the obvious whimbrel, wheatear and tern for me. Can't find any record of Tawny Owl from my Morocco trips unfortunately - another reason to go back there along with Atlas Flycatcher and 'Andalucian Hemipode'.

Just realised I got 7 armchair ticks this time, I had not followed up Swinhoe's, Himalayan and Deignan's Prinias, plus Eastern Black-eared Wheatear, Maghreb Wood Owl, Cryptic Honeyeater and Hudsonian Whimbrel.
Now for Island Thrush, Common/Mew, Short-billed and Kamchatka Gulls...... and many more

Whats the story with the Porzana crakes? Tax note for the genus says:
Quote:
Proposed revisions of Porzana crakes include separation of 10 species to Zapornia, and one species (cinereus) to Amaurornis? (Slikas et al 2002 , H&M 4, Stervander et al. 2019),
But they are all still there

Porzana Crakes

It's about time that I began to participate in Bird Forum. Looking forward to it.

Our apologies for the confusion regarding the Porzana crakes.
It is true that we were prepared to revise the classification of rails in Version 10.1, particularly in regards to the genus Porzana. But as our deadline for 10.1 neared, we realized that our initial modification of the family was incomplete, and failed to adequately include the findings from additional references.

Rather than rush the revisions we intended for this family, we chose to withdraw our updates for the 10.1 version of the IOC World Bird List. We very much intend to do a proper revision for Rallidae in 10.2. The entries in the Comments column of the 10.1 spreadsheet are intended to be “working notes”, not final statements.

This is certainly an unusual situation for us, largely because we were so close to release of our Updates. But we would rather do this right than rush the process and then have to revise our partial revisions when we are prepared to release Version 10.2 later this year.

Hi David,

Great that you've joined the group. Hope all is well with you and we meet up again sometime soon.
