As some of you already know, the American Ornithologists' Union  
recently published the 52nd Supplement to its Check-List of North  
American Birds. While none of the splits or lumps adds or subtracts  
any species on the Minnesota list, it's worth noting the changes  
affecting our state's checklist:

- The name Common Moorhen (Gallinula chloropus) is changed to Common  
Gallinule (Gallinula galeata).

- The scientific name of Snowy Plover is changed from Charadrius  
alexandrinus to Charadrius nivosus.

- Northern Wheatear (Oenanthe oenanthe) has been moved from the Family  
Turdidae to the Family Muscicapidae (Northern Wheatear becomes the  
sole species on the Minnesota list in this family).

- The most sweeping change affects the scientific names and list  
sequence of most of the warblers (Family Parulidae); accordingly, the  
42 species recorded in Minnesota are now listed as follows:

Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapilla)
Worm-eating Warbler (Helmitheros vermivorum)

It's quite possible I may have missed something, so be sure to let mou- 
net know if there are any corrections or additions to the information  
above. And following is a link to the AOU's 52nd Supplement:
