I see that IOC 4.3 has moved the parrots to the end of the non-passerines,
and has detached the falcons from the rest of the birds of prey and located
them before the parrots.

A notable ornithologist of an earlier generation who lived in Canberra,
Jerry van Tets, always maintained from his anatomical studies that parrots
and falcons were closely related and that both were close to the
passerines. I think he would have been pleased at this new arrangements of
the bird families.
