Getting obscure now. I am aware to some level of reduced interest in the naming of the various possible Koel factions (because I expect whatever it is now to not be the final outcome and I wonder if we really can fit a species divide there) but I am lost as to the relevance of the Shadow Minister for the Environment wants to extirpate both species or only the latter. In particular why should such a person have a view on this and how do we know they do if they do and why would we care?

I had got myself confused in the memory of an exchange on Birding-aus where the various taxonomies seem to take various approaches to Asian, Pacific, Australian and Eastern Koels.
It appears that the BA Rarities Committee (BARC_Australian_Checklist_v2014Jan) see the two possible species in Australia as Asian Koel (Indian Ocean Islands) and Pacific Koel. That source seems to regard the name 'Eastern Koel' as passe. This seems to lead to view that BA and its rarities committee are using different names which could lead to some interesting outcomes.
