 itself, I have gleaned the following tidbits:

1. Anseriformes and Galliformes now follow Tinamiformes (Tinamous). For
everywhere north of Mexico, this places them at the top of the order. (The
B.O.U. made this change earlier this year as well).

2. The Rock Dove is now (ta-da!) the Rock Pigeon. This brings it into
conformance with the other Columba pigeons...
