The latest version 6.1 of the IOC world list is now available. Five new species have been added, with Sedge Wren the most likely addition for BUBO Listers.

The long overdue updates to both the AOU North and Middle American checklist and the ABA area checklist, have also been added. Amongst the most interesting changes for listers include the split of Ridgway's Rail from Clapper Rail, Xantus's Murrelet split into Scripps's and Guadalupe, Sage Sparrow split into Sagebrush Sparrow and Bell’s Sparrow, acceptance of both Fea's and Zino's Petrels, as well as a number of exotic species now considered established, including Egyptian Goose, Nanday Parakeet and Rosy-faced Lovebird.
