In sending yesterday's message about Skuas, I should have mentioned that 
in Sibley Birds of the World V.1.5, the genus Catharacta has been merged 
with Stercorarius on the basis of DNA sequencing.  The difference between 
Catharacta and Stercorarius is no greater than the distance between the 
different Stercorarius, and Stercorarius has precedence.
Sorry for the oversight.
