They are not Fratercula cirrhata but actually Fratercula corniculata.

The following are labeled Pied Imperial Pigeon (Ducula bicolor). They are actually Torresian Imperial Pigeon (Ducula spilorrhoa) which has been split.

The following have scientific name misspelled:

https://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sh...hp?photo=34777
https://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sh...hp?photo=80962

Should be Eurystomus orientalis, not Eurystomus orientslis or Eurystomus orientslis
