Milvus lineatus is now split from M. migrans and is listed in the
Index to Organism Names. Brazil, in "Birds of East Asia" uses M.
lineatus - Black-eared Kite, but the split does not appear to have
made it to the IOC list yet.

Is that Milvus migrans (lineatus) or is lineatus now regarded as a
separate species? My world bird checklist (downloaded from www.wirldbirdnames.org
) does not show it as a separate species and my copy of The Birds of
Hong Kong and South China (Viney, Philips & Lam) also shows it as a
different sub-species of our own Black Kite.
