 It is imperative that we align COG exactly with Birds Australia on this.  We exchange data with them, so any RAOU number changes should be in complete accordance with what they do. 


I will discuss this with Andrew Silcocks database manager at Birds Australia.  BA needs to make a decision and inform the wider membership and affiliated organizations.


When a change is then decided by the COG Committee, after consultation with the membership, we can then make the changes required to our existing databases and input programs.


By the way, I assume 1101 is the RAOU number for hybrid C-E Rosella?  I haven’t checked yet.

May I suggest we stay as we are until Tony Lawson has completed his review for the Committee.

Have the new names in C&B been officially endorsed by Birds Aus or BOCA? 


Looking at the Birds Australia website (see suggests that there is yet a way to go before COG should make any changes.

Does anyone know whether a list of the new Christides and Bowles names is available on-line? - so that I can get it right when editing Gang-gang articles.
