  6. Sorry, brain fart there. Which statement in particular? I think it’s pretty well known that European species are pretty split. The European countries split a lot of American species as well on their lists. I don’t know as much about central situation but thats what I’ve heard with talking to people who have a lot more experience down there than me.
  7. Another one two that I haven't been mentioned yet are Bell's Vireo and Swainson's Thrush. I think that the vast majority of these birds should be split but the AOU is extremely cautious and slow with splitting (the European's are the opposite, they split everything it seems). There's hundreds of splits waiting to happen in south and central America that the AOU won't consider till there's multiple genetic studies.
  8. Yeah I've heard there's a pretty good chance that STJA get split this AOU cycle. The other two main splits I can think of is House Wren (it's crazy it isn't split yet) and Fox Sparrow. I think a Junco split will happen in the future but not 5-ways. I think Gray-headed/Red-backed birds will be the first to get split off.
  9. Vultures become more common the further south you go. There's almost always a vulture in the sky where I live, and when you get down into the neotropics they become the most abundant birds in the area.
