click photos to enlargeI hate to think of the research and re-typing I will have to do when I get home and update my life list. Many of the birds I have listed are now called something else. The Slaty Antshrike will not have to be updated (well, maybe!) because I have just re-written it. What was Slaty Antshrike (Thamnophilus punctatus atrinucha), is now Western Slaty Antshrike (Thamnophilus atrinucha). It has been this way since 1997, but my field guide was published 1989.
