Actually, if I remember properly, most Australian bird names were coined by
committee in 1898, or there abouts: not by RAOU in 1926. Wasn't  Colonel
Legg or something the chairman of the committee? Certainly Charles de Vis
was part of the process. It was sponsored and published by the immediate
ancestor of  ANZAAS, whatever its name was.


South Brisbane, Australia
