We Update the list regularly with advances in taxonomy of world birds. Significant Updates are noted under “Comments” that include citations to References. Starting with v3.3, we highlight changes including little ones, from the previous version in red. We skipped web pages for Finches, Nightjars, and Raptors that include extensive revisions of the classification. Please let us know whether you find this helpful or distracting.
