Latest I.O.C. Update is Version 7.2 – Taxonomy and Finished

Sandhill Cranes – Adult and Juvenile in our yard 8/27/10

The latest I.O.C. Birds of the World Version 7.2 is now completed on this site. [As far as I know] Just finished updating all the Indexes for the birds by the First Name and by the Last Name. I trust this will continue to assist in finding just that bird you are looking for. [I find it easier to find the birds on Lee’s Birdwatching Adventures, than out in the field trying to find them. :0) ]

Indexes:

The last two articles, Latest I.O.C. Update is Version 7.2 – Name Changes  and the Species Changes listed those changes. Today’s updates are in the Taxonomy. Some of these were changes in genera, a few were spelling corrections, a couple of them shuffled some birds around.

Five Cranes had a change of genus fron Grus:

The Surfbird, Ruff, Broad-billed Sandpipe, Spoon-billed Sandpiper, and the Buff-breasted Sandpiper were all changed to the Calidris genus.

Four Antwrens were changed from the Terenura genus to the Euchrepomis genus. They are the Rufous-rumped Antwren, Chestnut-shouldered Antwren, Yellow-rumped Antwren, and the Ash-winged Antwren.

Two Bulbuls; the Olive Bulbul had a spelling correction from virescens to viridescens, and the Buff-vented Bulbul is Iole crypta.

And last of all, two Laughingthrushes, the Black-chined and Kerala, have a new genus of Montecincla.

Most casual birdwatchers are not too concerned about these kinds of changes, but those who work with photos and life lists, etc. have an interest.

Until the next update, it is hoped that the indexes and information will be helpful.

Latest I.O.C. Update is Version 7.2 – Species Changes

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:

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)
