it took a lot of wading through the paper to get to this bit:

Proposals considered but not accepted by the Committee included recognition of the columbid subfamily Starnoenadinae, change of the English name of Blue-headed Quail-Dove Starnoenas cyanocephala, separation of Garnet-throated Hummingbird Lamprolaima rhami into 2 species, recognition of Guanacaste Hummingbird Amazilia alfaroana as a species rather than a hybrid, separation of Ardea occidentalis from Great Blue Heron A. herodias, separation of Aegolius brooksi from Northern Saw-whet Owl A. acadicus, removal of “scrub” from the English names of the scrub-jays (Aphelocoma spp.), separation of Unicolored Jay Aphelocoma unicolor into 4 species, separation of Horned Lark Eremophila alpestris into 2 or more species, and change of the English name of Olive Warbler Peucedramus taeniatus to Ocotero.

Is the rational for these rejections published anywhere? I read the NACC proposals each year but never get to read the reasons for rejection or acceptance.

Yes, AOS publishes the comments from committee members on the same webpages where it posts the proposals. Comments for the first set of 2020 proposals have not been posted yet (http://checklist.americanornithology...sals/2020.html), but the ones for the 2019 proposals are available (http://checklist.americanornithology...sals/2019.html) as are those for earlier years
