IOC 8.2 – latest revision

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

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

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).
