         That "imitatress" could even be considered as a common name for any 
bird outside the Roman or Greek Republics indicates how out of touch with 
common birders committees can  occasionally be.
         With any due respect, these committees sometimes seem to confuse 
themselves with Academia, and must secretly lust for Scientific standing.

         I don't suppose anything as democratic as a formal open forum run on 
say birding-aus for naming suggestions, (with an Indigenous voice section) 
might ever be considered?

          Here's to PC and absurdity.
