Nice! I remember a thread a couple of years back on the id forum (?) which described these birds in detail, using the white-faced name; at that time, no scientific name was connected with the birds.

goodie!

interesting to see that they've discovered a breeding site.

Hmmm; rather disconcertingly they lose the white lores very quickly on the breeding grounds (hard to find a white-lored bird in Fujian by mid May) and look rather more like Kentish Plovers....

cheers, alan

True but then again "...passing similarity to Malaysian Plover when in breeding plumage"

I guess it'll all hinge on the genetics...

  • There was also a few weeks ago :
    "Rheindt, F. E. & J. A. Eaton, 2011. A taxonomic reappraisal of the Maroon-chinned Fruit-Dove Ptilinopus subgularis complex based on morphology and vocalizations" ... that should be published in a forthcoming Forktail.

    Still pending or replaced by the above article ?

Yes, Frank listed that title as in submission last year:
www.birdforum.net/showpost.php?p=1920270&postcount=1

But I guess it morphed into the forthcoming Wilson J Orn paper.
