IOC 8.2 – latest revision

The latest revision of the IOC taxonomy list has been posted on their site

www.worldbirdnames.org/updates/

the new list is currently in draft form and becomes effective from 27 July
2018.

As far as Australia is concerned the Western Whipbird has been split into
White-bellied Whipbird (P. leucogaster – from SA) and Black-throated
Whipbird (p. nigrogularis – from WA)

The new list has also revised the taxonomical order for Cuckooshrikes and
Grassbirds. I am not sure what the actual effect (if any) on Australian
lists will be. I have been unable to download the draft spreadsheet
(hopefully they will correct this within the near future).
