We have just completed applying the August 2016 updates to the eBird/Clements list. Several splits will impact BUBO Listers, including Leach's Storm-Petrel, Emerald Dove, Western Scrub-Jay, Greater Short-toed Lark and Crested Lark. There are a few lumps as well, including Caribbean Coot and Barbary Falcon - hopefully the net effect is that most listers will gain.

Taxonomic updates are applied as normal, and you will be notified if any updates impact you. The updated Clements checklist can be viewed in full.

IOC updates will be applied in a couple of weeks.
