New birds acquired so new icon requests...

Geopelia maugeus

Heleia crassirostris

Lonchura stygia

Lonchura striata (ssp. subsquamicollis)

Lonchura leucosticta

Pycnonotus leucogrammicus

Zosterops anomalus

I would also like to request changing the English name of this latter species to Black-ringed white-eye, as it is both much more descriptive and is more commonly used in literature, including by the HBW:
http://www.hbw.com/species/black-ringed ... s-anomalus

Another request would be an icon for the very distinctively colored brown-headed brunneiceps subspecies of Lonchura atricapilla.
This photo shows well how different these birds are from the typical Black-headed munias:

I now have both black and brown-headed supspecies of these birds and it would be great if I could differentiate them in the list with different icons.

Thank you.

And something different!

I have just noticed that the HBW, pretty much considered a standard work in ornithology these days, has finally split the Zebra Finch into two separate species.
Somewhat confusingly, the more obscure little Timor Zebra Finch now wears the old Latin name T. guttata, the far more familiar Australian Zebra is now called T. castenotas.

http://www.hbw.com/species/timor-zebra- ... a#Taxonomy

http://www.hbw.com/species/australian-z ... s#Taxonomy

Normally such splits are only of interest to ornithologists and birdwatchers, but this one concerns what is probably the single most popular finch in aviculture!
Are you planning to split them on this site?
If so, T. guattata with all its data on the site should be renamed T. castenotas, and a new icon created for the Timor zebra with the name T. guttata.

Great. I love the Aplonis minor.

Any chance of adding a few more society finch icons, namely Greyino, Black grey and Pearl grey


Also on the blue faced parrot finch forecaster can the Black eyed yellow be added, it's autosomal recessive and splits show some white feathers around mask

@ikhom

I understand you no longer do regular updates and additions to this site, but for those of us still faithfully using it and posting the odd request, could you maybe do the requested additions say just once a year?
That would be great.
I am only posting this Q as I noticed your announcement about moving to a new server last month, indicating that you still intend to keep the site running.

Thanks!

I've added new icons, renamed Black-ringed white-eye. I will post an update in a few days.

Thank you!
Much appreciated.

The new icons look brilliant - especially the Brown-headed munia whose new icon I've just discovered.

At the risk of sounding a bit too fussy may I request that you modify the new icon of Lonchura striata? The current black & white icon may be based on photos of the subspecies native to India and never exported. The Southeast Asian and South Chinese subspecies actually kept in aviculture look quite different, like this:
http://orientalbirdimages.org/search.ph ... Family_ID=

I have also obtained 4 new species since my previous request:

Black-headed Bulbul (Pycnonotus atriceps)

Mali firefinch (Lagonosticta virata)
https://goo.gl/images/XQcGLC

Grand munia (Lonchura grandis)

Wangi wangi White-eye (Zosterops sp. )
This is a species newly split from Z. consobrinorum and not yet given a Latin name.
It does look very distinct, with yellow bill. An image for it could easily be created just by changing the color of the bill of the Oriental white-eye icon to yellow.
https://goo.gl/images/KrE8d3
If you'd rather not create a new species entry, its icon could perhaps go under Z. consobrinorum.

I've just joined the forum, I'm a great bird lover and I have quite a few birds. Please keep this site running as I intend to spend a lot of time here.
