Dave, it is good to know I’m not the only one confused. But am I confused about 
that too? 
That’s a rhetorical question.

For the sake of those who don’t understand “rhetorical”, of course I am but I 
agree with everything you have said/written.

But that’s probably confused another set of readers............

A few points Bob (not grammar or spelling!): 

  1.. I don't know what an "official" list would be. There are no laws in this 
area! I guess one that government adopts would be closest, but with our 
multitude of governments what chance they would all agree? 
  2.. Whilst BirdLife Australia may as you say endorse the BirdLife 
International taxonomy (I have not checked) as far as I know the list it has 
produced is not 100% compliant. And furthermore it seems that BARC will stick 
with IOC..... 
  3.. I guess we have lived for some years with "international" birders using 
IOC or Clements or whatever and finding Australia a little strange to have its 
own taxonomy in C&B. (But I guess we may not be unique in that respect). Now it 
seems we have just replaced one Aussie taxonomy by another.....
