Heads up: Some or all of the identifications affected by this split may have been replaced with identifications of Bubulcus. This happens when we can't automatically assign an identification to one of the output taxa. Review identifications of Bubulcus ibis 5017

Taxonomic Split 132987 (Δημιουργήθηκε στις 13-12-2023)


Eastern Cattle Egret Bubulcus coromandus is split from Western Cattle (formerly Cattle) Egret B. ibis (Clements 2007:20)
The Eastern Cattle Egret of Asia and Australasia looks very different in breeding plumage from Western Cattle Egret of Europe, Asia, and the Western Hemisphere, but when not breeding, proportional differences are key to their identification.

@rjq @birdwhisperer
We can't validate this one without staff, but I was thinking to start by validating the switch from ssp. coromandus to the new species.
Do you agree with that?

@donalddavesne Usually, I just leave these to staff, regardless of what we could do to help. I'll collect a list of changes that would need such intervention.

Atlases etc look good to me. I think we should not raise coromandus to species level yet, as this would lead to confusion until the split is completed

OK I won't commit anything then ;)

just started committing records through the back end - might take a while

We’ll need to change the common name of Bubulcus ibis, too. Currently still as “Cattle Egret” but it should be “Western Cattle Egret”

ok this finished processing - does anything look weird - are there any of those issues with the community ID or identification categories not updating?

Looks good based on the atlases I made. There is one Eastern IDed in Oman, which is not outlandish.

Yeah, looks good. The ones from the northwestern Hawaiian islands will need to be identified individually. Most should be ibis, but there are a handful of record of coromandus from out there
