We are pleased to publish the latest revision of the Singapore Bird List to include taxonomic changes based on the latest IOC World Bird List version 7.3.
The changes are:
- Replacing Glossy Swiftlet with Plume-toed Swiftlet due to split of the Glossy Swiftlet species complex (Rheindt et al. 2017)
- Change of genus name for Garganey and Northern Shoveler from Anas to Spatula (Gonzalez et al. 2009)
- Change of genus name for Gadwall and Eurasian Wigeon from Anas to Mareca (Gonzalez et al. 2009)
- Family Scolopacidae (sandpipers and snipes) resequenced to follow Gibson and Baker (2012)
