common moorhen split

21 Dec 2012 23:03 #884 by Richard Banks
I've just stumbled over a split of Common Gallinule (Gallinula galeata) from Common moorhen such that the former is the american species and the latter the rest of the world. Found this by preparing a checklist for a future Washington DC trip and confirmed by
www.worldbirdnames.org/n-bustards.html

Have checked BUBO and my arizona list still has common moorhen ticked and common gallinule isn't recognised.

Hi Richard

We're a bit out of date with most of our US state lists unfortunately. However I've just split Common Moorhen on the Arizona list for you, and we'll catch up with the others in due course.

Thanks Mike. You still have Common Moorhen on the "Continental North America" list.

Hi Richard

Yes, sorry, we're still out of date with the latest rounds of changes to both the AOU and ABA lists (which includes the Common Moorhen split and various others). We'll get around to these shortly and let you know.
