Well I think you'll find it will shortly. Probably as Pond Heron sp? in a paper in preparation on the birds of Christmas Island by David James destined for Australian Field Ornithology and in the second volume of The Handbook of the Birds of Western Australia. And I'd like to see the Swiftlets treated likewise. Otherwise such occurrences would be lost. The identification is just to a lower level, generic not specific. But I wouldn't count such an entity on my species list.
