Often nest in Woodpecker nest holes

8767 Lilian's Lovebird

Named after the ornithologist's daughter, Lilian Sclater. So let's have one given a scientific name after the ornithologist's wife; Cyanomitra alinae, named after Lady Aline Jackson, wife of ornithologist and Governor of Uganda, Sir Frederick Jackson.

8768 Blue-headed Sunbird

Pyrrhura picta. Pyrrhura means "flame-coloured." I don't have a photo of the next bird, which I saw several of on Volcan Acatenango in Guatemala. But I do have photos of the flames that we saw later that day, from the same location, but on the adjacent volcano, Fuego, so I'll include a couple of photos of them instead.

8772 Black-capped Siskin

Apols if already gone (I haven't looked in for a while) but anyone done the latest accepted IOC splits yet? If not then:-

8774. Bornean Black-capped Babbler

(Or Malayan if the original post for Black-capped Babbler was from Borneo 😁)

If there have been some splits since the thread started then I think Jacana needs to decide if he's going to allow them, and if so, update the list in the first post accordingly.

I think this subject came up before and the ruling was no ongoing splits. It's hard enough to keep track of two different taxonomies, nevermind including new splits.
I'm not talking about ongoing splits which are at the proposed stage. Ages ago in this thread new splits were allowed in the game at the stage they were accepted rather than between the two annual updates ( eg when S American Snipe was split by IOC) But like you say, it's up to Will.

Seems reasonable in which case

Assuming Black-capped Babbler is OK then one sub-species of this bird (one seen in Halmahera) has a dark /black cap.

8775 Violet-necked Lory
