The problem arose in how to search for the European/Asian Magpies, in other words, how to construct the search term for Opus. Pica+pica does not work due to a quirk in how the search engine works. Common+Magpie finds about 10 species of magpies plus some magpie-larks and other stuff where common is mentioned in the comments. When I therefore saw that Clements and G&W both recommended Eurasian Magpie as common name for this species, I changed the name for Pica pica and tried Eurasian+Magpie as the search term. That does seem to be specific, and with the changes you made, there are now 17 images found, which of course is far less than what is in the gallery, but at least it is some, and they are almost all of them correct. (one image of a sparrowhawk).

Thanks

Good point. I've added Eurasian Mapie as an addition in the Keyword field which seems to work just as well for the search tool. 32 hits now.

Ian, nice solution.

Here is another one:
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...hp?photo=56583 should be Ampeliceps coronatus.

Cheers

I have just looked at http://www.birdforum.net/opus/Brown-Backed_Munia and http://www.birdforum.net/opus/Black-and-white_Mannikin, which some authorities treat as lumped. I did not feel there was enough consensus to lump these in Opus, but as such, these two images are Lonchura nigriceps and not Lonchura bicolor:

http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=132909
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=151151

They are both labeled correctly in the field for Scientific name, but has bicolor included in the comment field, and they are the only images that come up with a search for Lonchura bicolor; we don't have a correct image for that species. Should the comment field be edited?

Hm! Whilst the search picks up the comments field they are correctly identified. We usually discount the comment field as it can contain details of other bird species.

Thanks Ian,
Fine, I just wanted to raise the question. Here is another one: http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...hp?photo=40359. The scientific name now is Anopetia gounellei.

Cheers

http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=140987 should be Plain-throated Sunbird (or Brown-throated Sunbird) Anthreptes malacensis. Please change title as well as scientific name.

I know this is a pain in the neck, but all 27 of these Firecrests should now be Regulus ignicapilla instead of R. ignicapillus.
