One for me, at any rate (if the IOC accept it):

 I'd always been interested in the taxonomy of this bird, with various 
authorities treating them in a variety of ways. Some treated it as a stable 
hybrid of House and Spanish Sparrow, others as a race of Spanish and and the 
Dutch as a separate species. While some would maintain that the Dutch would 
split male and female Blackcap, they often appear to get things right in 
advance of everyone else.
