Hi Geoffrey,

You will (perhaps) be pleased to know that Clements is changing its koel treatment to reduce confusion we discussed about Australian vs oriental vs asian vs pacific.  This will better align with the other taxonomies too.


Eudynamys scolopaceus

Asian Koel

Eudynamys orientalis

Pacific Koel

Eudynamys orientalis [orientalis Group]

Pacific Koel (Oriental)

Eudynamys orientalis cyanocephalus/subcyanocephalus

Pacific Koel (Australian)
