.. and I can't resist putting in a plug for my favourite birdbase program
BirdInfo.  BirdInfo will let you use Sibley & Monroe numbers, RAOU numbers,
common names or scientific names to enter and search for things.  Enter things
in their split forms (eg. Yellow rather than Crimson Rosella, or Yellow-rumped
rather than Spotted Pardalote), and BirdInfo will churn them out again on demand
lumped or split as your heart desires.

I'm not a BirdInfo shareholder - just a happy customer ;-)

That should bump the thread off on to a new level of vitriol and partisanship
