This should now all be Phoenicopterus roseus :

And that's only the start... All Greater Flamingos from Europe, Africa and Asia should be renamed as roseus, pictures from the Carribean (including Florida and southern USA) are ruber. Maybe someone finds the time to do it (there are around 200 images..)

The split of Darter into three species brings some gallery work:

These should be renamed in Anhinga novaehollandiae:

These into Anhinga rufa:

http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=280765
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=259836

And that's only the start (again). All Darters from Australia are now novaehollandiae , all from Africa rufa. Indian and south-east Asian birds stay in melanogaster.

They all appear to be done now André - I did a few, someone else obviously caught the rest.

EDIT: er... no Ian... I started at the bottom! The top one was already done when I looked.

The photo and text in opus regarding Phaenicophilus poliocephalus are completely wrong (common mistake). The bird shown is an immature P. palmarum, a common bird of Hispaniola. The P. poliocephalus appears exclusively on the southwestern peninsula of Haiti and not the Dominican Republic (and absolutely not o the Dominican east coast called Bavarro..

Caribemotion, are you sure about the range information being wrong? I don't have my books with me at the moment, so cannot check, but I do know that the mountains of the southern Haiti peninsula do continue into DR for a few km, and for example Black-capped Petrel has been found on the DR side of the border.

I do not doubt you when you say the image was wrong, I probably should have checked the location before adding it.

Yes, I am sure. It happens all the time. I've seen the Gray-crowned Palm Tanager several times on the La Vache island. It was only seen once several decades ago close to the Haitian-Dominican border. But as this photo was taken on the east coast of the island, it is without doubt the immature Black crowned P. T. Also the gray crown is much more dominant and light gray.

In regards to the Black-capped Petrel there is no record of nesting sites further than approx. 2-5 kilometers from the border into the Dominican Republic. All birds found, for example in the central mountain range in the Dominican Republic, were dead individuals (flying over), but no nesting sites. Probably more research has to be done. I participated in the search of new populations last winter at the border and a small nesting group was found, but as mentioned only a few kms from the border.

Thanks Jurgen,
it was those 2-5 km that I thought might contain the Palm Tanager as well.

Thanks

Grey-green Bushshrike

The scientific name for this photo of a Grey-green Bushshrike is now Chlorophoneus bocagei.

And these are now Chlorophoneus sulfureopectus

Another one for Chlorophoneus sulfureopectus

Megan's photo was named Slate-crowned Antpitta Grallaricula nana, but this was pre-split. It is now Sucre Antpitta Grallaricula cumanensis.

I have PM'ed COLOMBIA Birding to check that his photo is of the same species.
