Dear Birders,
While it is true to say that IOC does not recognise “Tasmanian Boobook” this is 
only part of the story. IOC lists Morepork (Ninox novaeseelandiae)  ssp. 
leucopsis as ocurring in Tasmania and islands in the Bass Strait. So under IOC 
if you see a “Boobook” in Tasmania it is a tick because it is a Morepork not a 
Boobook! There is no split of the Northern Boobook.
