With this split the unofficial IOC species count has reached 10,999. (That's provided I haven't missed any changes from the diary.) One more split to hit the 11,000 mark!
And even further reducing the percentages of those that care about these things, you know who you are (Larry) ;)

But where does that leave Sierra Madre-Samar-Mindanao(?) Crow(s)?
We still have them listed as "Proposed Splits" from Slender-billed Crow. The split of Palawan Crow was fairly clear cut given its significant morphological and vocal differences from the others. These two subspecies, and those from se Asia and Indonesia, are less distinctive and require further consideration.

On the bright side, your raw life list numbers are at least going up? This is why I set my birding list goals to raw numbers rather than percentages :p

Unfortunately for me, SE Asia is just too far away. I have hardly scratched the surface of South America which is much closer.

May 10 Post split of Javan Leafbird Chloropsis cochinchinensis and Blue-winged Leafbird C. moluccensis.''

I assume this is an accepted split since it was previously proposed as a split on Mar 27

👍 Not a great English name anyway. Seen lots of serins up mountains all over Europe - never this species😆

I'll gift you my shot of one of the birds I found on Gunung Gede in Java, my flash had packed up and it was gloomy, hence the less than stellar quality.

Anyone targeting the species, should look for the flowers you can see in the shot, I've seen a few reports of them eating these as they were doing here.
