Based on range, this should be Northern White-faced Owl = Ptilopsis leucotis:
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...hp?photo=44755

Likewise on range, this should be Southern White-faced Owl = Ptilopsis granti

http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=115915
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=117464
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=121686
In the second group, most of the images use the correct scientific name but the common name used before the split of Southern from Northern. Should they be changed? The last one uses an old pre-split scientific name.

The Opus entries for the little wattlebird complex have been quite confused, and in addition, it is only now that there is an Australian checklist that includes this split. I have looked at the images and think that the should be changed:

Should be Little Wattlebird with Anthochaera chrysoptera (and no mention of lunulata:
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...hp?photo=25132
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...hp?photo=44365
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...hp?photo=46560
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=102934


Should be Western Wattlebird with Anthochaera lunulata (and no mention of chrysoptera):
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...hp?photo=74300

Is a Red Wattlebird and should be Anthochaera carunculata:

http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=171076 is labeled Spotted Owlet but with the scientific name for Forest Owlet (Athene blewitti). I asked on the ID forum, http://www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?t=107196, and the only respondent agree with me that this has to be spotted (as indicated by the common name used) and that the scientific name therefore should be Athene brama .

Thanks KC,
I now have another one: I split the Opus entry for Sunda Treepie, and both images for that species show the one that became Bornean Treepie, Dendrocitta cinerascens. The two images are
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=137943
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=141449

Due to inclusion of subspecies name, both images are found with a search from the Opus page, but hitting the link to opus under the image does not work.

Cheers
Niels

PS The split is supported by Latest versions of Clements, Howard& Moore, and Sibley and Monroe, so it must be an oversight that it was not yet in Opus.

Amended

It seems that when creating a new species page in Opus you also have to create a page for the scientific name with a redirect to the common name titled page else the new page headed with the common name won't work.

I've added the redirect page so the links work now.

I do know that, but probably forgot because it became the last part of the evening. Sorry!

I've amended all the relevant Asian/European birds from Black-billed Magpie to Eurasian Magpie but left the others with Common Magpie as that's what it's known as over here in the ID guides.

The Black-billed have been amended to Pica hudsonia
