It would appear my previous posting was slightly premature as Michael Ramsay
has pointed out the Ground Parrot split, so here is my list of differences
including that:


On BARC list (based on IOC 2.9 with amendments):


Antipodean Albatross (split from Wandering Albatross)

Northern Royal Albatross (split from Royal Albatross - and Royal Albatross
renamed Southern Royal Albatross)

Campbell Albatross (split from Black-browed Albatross)

Salvin's Albatross (split from Shy Albatross)

Chatham Albatross (split from Shy Albatross)

Indian Yellow-nosed Albatross (split from Yellow-nosed Albatross - and
Yellow-nosed Albatross renamed Atlantic Yellow-nosed Albatross)

Eastern Cattle Egret (split from Cattle Egret - and Cattle Egret renamed
Western Cattle Egret)

Red-collared Lorikeet (split from Rainbow Lorikeet)

Western Ground Parrot (split from Ground Parrot - and Ground Parrot renamed
Eastern Ground Parrot)

Western Grasswren (split from Thick-billed Grasswren)

Western Fieldwren (split from Rufous Fieldwren)

Hornbill Friarbird (split from Helmeted Friarbird)

Swan River Honeyeater (split from White-naped Honeyeater)


Green-headed Yellow Wagtail lumped with Eastern Yellow Wagtail


On IOC 3.1:


Western Quail-thrush (split from Chestnut-breasted Quail-thrush)

Nullabor Quail-thrush (split from Cinnamon Quail-thrush)


Discussed (on birding-aus at least), but not official:


Western Shrike-tit (split from Crested Shrike-tit)


And I believe that C&B already lumps all ringnecks into one species,
Australian Ringneck - which has also been adopted by IOC.
