Hi all,

It's interesting that Silver-backed Butcherbird was split off Grey-backed
Butcherbird based on Kearns et al. 2013 (Molecular Phylogenetics and
Evolution 66: 941-952) and Kearns et al 2014 (Nature Communications 5:
Based on Kearns et al. 2013, shouldn't IOC have been more consistent and
have done the following:
(1) Split PNG Black Butcherbird and AUS Black Butcherbird
(2) Lump genus Gymnorhina with Cracticus, and move Australian Magpie
Cracticus tibicen next to Black Butcherbird?

Maybe we need further evidence.
