Bird Species Splits
If you have not heard already, Winter Wren and Whip-poor-will have each been split! Winter Wren remains such on the East Coast and has become Pacific Wren in its western range. Whip-poor-will has become Eastern Whip-poor-will in the east and Mexican Whip-poor-will in its western range.

Some details can be found at

Congratulations to those of you who have added a new species or two to your life lists!

Cheers, AG
