Greetings birders, Unfortunately I made (at least) a couple of errors in the 
latestchecklist release. 1) Stephen Murray has pointed out that the IOC has 
split thestorm-petrels into two families and this requires major changes to the 
sequenceof the Procellariiformes.   2) Ashwin Rudder and Nikolas Haass have 
recently discussed theRed-crowned Parakeet complex on Birding-Aus. There are 
two extinct Australian speciesin this complex,  Cyanoramphussubflavescens Lord 
Howe Parakeet Cyanoramphus erythrotisMacquarie Parakeet The upgrade for 
v2014Jan contained this change, but itsomehow did not get added to the main 
list for vJan2014 or subsequent. Therefore,long-term users may not be affected 
by this error. These two errors do not affect species numbers in anysignificant 
way, so I will not correct them until the next scheduled version(v2015Jul), if 
that suits users. Apologies for any inconvenience.
Thanks, Stephen, Ashwin and Nikolas, your input is greatlyappreciated.
