Clements/ebird update

For anyone interested, the Clements/ebird update has been published on ebird, but has yet to follow on the Clements page at Cornell. Since the project uses IOC for taxonomy, it only affects regional bird pages (ie country lists, state lists, etc). I usually wait until the changes appear on the Clements page, but I thought people would like to know. Changes here: [1]....Pvmoutside (talk) 10:31, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

Pretty quiet round here......

I have 2 GANs (Rock parrot and Western yellow robin) and there is a Peer Review open at Wikipedia:Peer review/Cactus wren/archive1....we are nearly at 200 FAs...which'd be nice. Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 00:33, 14 August 2019 (UTC)

HBW access

Hey everyone, I've been planning to work on some relatively obscure birds, which aren't covered so well by book sources. HBW access would be invaluable, but I'm disinclined to pay for it at the moment; is there anyone on this project with access who'd be willing to look up some species for me? Best, Vanamonde (Talk) 17:34, 14 August 2019 (UTC)

@Jimfbleak: has helped me in the past. Not sure if he is still subscribed though. Shyamal (talk) 16:53, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
Vanamonde93, I still have access, so email me when you know what you want. I also have a number of family monographs which may be helpful depending on the species, Jimfbleak - talk to me? 05:23, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

Identify birds in line art

Some years back, the Pearson Scott Foresman company donated a ton of line art to Commons. These were items which had been in their illustrated dictionaries. However, they didn't label all the images - and in fact, they donated them in the form of assemblies of images, with filenames like "PSF-W1040007" that indicate only the first letter of the words illustrated by the images.

That's the context. Can anyone identify these birds whose names begin with W?

Thanks. DS (talk) 14:36, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

The second bird might be an Eurasian wren (Troglodytes troglodytes). -Aa77zz (talk) 15:57, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

First --wood pigeon?Leo Breman (talk) 16:12, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

I wonder if the first is a Band-tailed pigeon? Vanamonde (Talk) 16:45, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
Unlikely - remember, 'w'. Could #2 be a wryneck ? DS (talk) 17:16, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
Missed that. Similar markings, though. Vanamonde (Talk) 17:51, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

The Ara Project

Hi there. I completely rewrote the article above... because it annoyed me. But perhaps it would be best to rename it completely... Something along the line of: Macaw reintroductions in Costa Rica or "population" or some-such? Cheers. Leo Breman (talk) 16:10, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
