The latest update to the I.O.C.’s list of all the birds of the world was released near the end of April. This blog site, Lee’s Birdwatching Adventures Plus, is almost updated with this new version. All the indexes and the actual family pages are finished. The alphabetical list of names is all that is left for me to update.
One bird was deleted from the list with this version:
Archbold’s Owlet-nightjar (Aegotheles archboldi)
Here are the English and scientific names of the new birds add with this new Version:
Black-fronted Francolin (Pternistis atrifrons)

Tomorrow, I’ll try to present rest of the changes. Still working on indexes.
The reason for the smiley face after the new extinct ones is because as most readers of this blog are aware, that this blog teaches Creation, not evolution. That means they now know the birds lived not soooooo far back in history.
Then God said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens.” So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. (Genesis 1:20-21 NKJV)
