If you see unfamiliar bird names in the list, please refer to the story below to understand the change and why it happened.
In addition, we list a number of new options for data entry (hybrids, spuhs, slashes, etc.), all of which are listed below.
This year’s update is v2017 of the e Bird/Clements Checklist.
The e Bird/Clements Checklist is an integrated global taxonomy for the birds of the world, including all species and subspecies, as well as additional taxa useful to field birders to report in e Bird.
This will ensure that the checklist filter is updated to the newest version.
