http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...hp?photo=14912 has two problems: the scientific name ends in a ")" which should be deleted, and the keywords contain a "/" which also should be deleted.

Cheers

The Gallery has two photos of the Nile Valley Sunbird (photo 193768 and photo 41132); neither has the scientific name ( Hedydipna metallica ).

http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...hp?photo=44891 has the correct title, but the person forgot to correct keywords (change bank swallow to Northern Rough-winged Swallow) and scientific name (Stelgidopteryx serripennis).

http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...hp?photo=33697 is lacking the scientific name (Accipiter ventralis) and it is the only image of that species in the gallery it seems.

http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=121437 is the wrong species, it should be Blackpoll Warbler according to this thread http://www.birdforum.net/showthread....=vireo+warbler. Scientific name should be Dendroica striata.

Okay Niels. I've gone ahead and changed them both. Was a bit reluctant to make changes to Etow's photo info but I see that he is aware of the proper name so I went ahead.

I had hoped he had seen my comment and made the changes himself, but several days had gone by, and I feared forgetting it completely

There is a spelling error in the name of this image http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=43885: thiged should be thighed.

These images http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=135373 and http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...hp?photo=26018 should both be Spizella passerina.

shows a German's Swiftlet Aerodramus germanus instead of Edible-nest Swiftlet. This species was split and based on range and nest this is a German's. I already switched the photo in the Opus.

Brown-mandibled Aracari is not accepted as species by Clements and H&M. Therefore the Opus article and the photo was moved to Ivory-billed Aracari, Pteroglossus azara.

Both pictures of Picoides stricklandi (http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sea...searchid=73076)
show Arizona Woodpeckers Picoides arizonae which we have now split in Opus (as Clements and H&M agree).
Unfortunately we don't have any pic of Strickland's Woodpecker.

The scientific name of Banded Woodpecker should be changed from mineaceus to miniaceus for all pictures in the gallery. The change is accepted by Clements (update to the 6th edition) and Howard & Moore.
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sea...searchid=73226

Opus article is already edited.
