Hi All,
after the discussions recently about C&B cf IOC, we've been checking out the 
IOC list, and I'm a bit intrigued by the "Morepork" entry.

I'm assuming this is in reference to the Norfolk Island birds, which I 
understood to be all hybrids now (except perhaps for one long-lived 

Am I correct in this assumption?  Or is Ninox novaeseelandiae accepted for the 
Norfolk Morepork, with birds there still accepted as a full species?  Or am I 
barking up completely the wrong tree, with "Morepork" in the IOC list referring 
to something else again?

Thanks (in anticipation) for the advice,
John Tongue
Ulverstone, Tas.
