Greg, you call it "the original ..." - original according to whom?

All these names I'm hearing mentioned, I assume some are local names and some 
are "official" names.  I'm interested to know how many authorities there 
are/have been for the various official names, and what they might be.  I guess 
people might consider the BA checklist as official, and the names in the field 
guides.  What other authorities are there?

Hi Michael,

'Tawny Frogmouth' is a shortened version of the original 'Tawny-shouldered 
Frogmouth'.  Although males are usually very grey they do have tawny brown 
'shoulders' (wing coverts) and females tend to be overall browner or redder 
than males.
