Dear All,

From time to time a thread arises on the list about common names and possible confusion arising from them. Here is a classic example. I came across these two today. Tit-babbler and Tit-Babbler. Fortunately the two genera occur on different Continents. Imagine the confusion they would cause without capitalisation.
