To:  birders at umich.edu


I am sure the listers knows this already, but I  thought the rest of us
might be interested to know that the IOC is  "respliting" the
yellow-rumped  warbler
(http://www.worldbirdnames.org/documents/TheYellow-rumpedWarblerspeciesgroup
.html)
into  not 2 (like before the 1973 lump), but 4 species.....

It might take a  while before ABA follows suit, though, but this is a
great tick to get from  my cubicle.....(and the Audubon is soo much
cuter than the Myrtle anyway,  this is only fair!)
