Armchair Tick: Blue Grouse Split!

It looks like quite a few birders now have a new species "tick" on their ABA and life lists: Blue Grouse has been split into two separate species.

A nice summary of the recent taxonomical changes made by the AOU can be found at Michael Retter's site: xenospiza.

YEE HAW! ¡Vivan los Splitters!

I can't wait to see all the fun when the Red Crossbill multi-split finally comes through...
