Hi!

I wright to you in English even though I believe you read Swedish.

It´s very nice that Virtual Bird is running again. I made inquiries about what had happened when the site was gone, but with no respons.

I would like to comment on some of your Latin names on your sound site. The correct names should read:

Dendrocopos leucotos
Phylloscopus collybita
Sylvia curucca

Regards

Stefan Cherrug


Answer

In my web pages (The Virtual Bird) I'm following the taxonomic order and nomenclature of Howard and Moore. The first two names You mention follow the Sibley and Monroe convention.
The third is a clear typo and will be corrected - Thanks.

I had unfortunately a long period when I was unable to have access to a suitable server where to put the contents.
