oops, sorry, I merged whipbirds with jewel-babblers in one family in my previous note, here is the correct version, and a note about bristlebirds:

The remaining species, the former members of Eupetidae, now constitute two new families, the whipbirds and wedgebills (Psophodidae) for the genera Androphobusand Psophodes; and the quail-thrushes and jewel- babblers (Cinclosomatidae) for the genera Cinclosoma and Ptilorrhoa. Position the Psophodidae and Cinclosomatidae immediately following the Wattlebirds (Callaeidae) and the Stitchbird (Notiomystidae).

Page 517, Bristlebirds (Dasyornis)
The three species of bristlebirds earlier were classified as members of Acanthizidae (Thornbills and allies). They now have been demonstrated to be a separate family, the Dasyornithidae. Place the Dasyornithidae between the Honeyeaters (Meliphagidae) and the Pardalotes (Pardalotidae).
