2018 eBird Taxonomy Update

The eBird taxonomy update is COMPLETE. We do this update once each year, taking into account the past 12 months worth of recent taxonomic knowledge on splits, lumps, name changes, and changes in the sequence of the species lists. As of this point, all core eBird data will be reflecting the new taxonomy. This includes your My eBird lists, range maps, bar charts, region and hotspot lists, and data entry. Your eBird Mobile should have had an “Updating taxonomy…” message that will have loaded the new version. We do have a small number of minor changes yet to make, which may affect the lists for some users as we implement these over the next few days. If you see unfamiliar bird names in the list, please refer to the story below to understand the change and why it happened.
