The question of common names, or any other bird name for that matter, should be dealt with in the usual way.  The COG Management Committee refers the matter to the Rarities Committee.  Their recommendation is taken up by the Committee and approved.  At the moment Christidis and Boles is the recommended source and so irrespective of what the CSIRO publication has to say the recommended Christidis and Boles names are what we publish in CBN.  If folks feel strongly enough about a change could they please let the Management Committee know so that the Committee can decide whether to refer this to the Rarities Committee.


All I can say is thank goodness I am not on the Rarities Committee!
