World Bird List – Birdnames

posted in: News | 0

I have been looking at the IOC World Bird List website to check on the latest correct names for birds. I have discovered the following changes which I was not aware of:-

Previous name – Latest Name – Date of Change

Purple Swamphen – Western Swamphen – 2015

Thekla Lark – Thekla’s Lark – 2017

I’m sure there are many occasions when we do not use the latest name for a bird but I will endeavour to get this right in the future.
