Greetings. In case you have not yet caught up with it, last month
Birdlife Australia released v. 2 of its Working List. It contains many
changes from v. 1.2 and is now very different from C&B 2008. See .

Among the changes are
•        98 changes to order names
•        180 changes to family scientific names
•        43 changes to family common names
•        139 changes to genus names

Some of the changes affect the names of birds in COG's area of interest,
incl such favourites as the Australian Magpie!

This has implications for COG's annotated list of the birds of the ACT,
website and Annual Bird Report.
