As the above title denotes, this particular list is a re-ordered version of the main "Taxonomy in Flux" Checklist, produced solely as an accompanying reference document for my various bird photo 'collections'. The aim is to have an abridged list that shows the ORDERS, families, subfamilies and, if relevant, tribes, that relate to the species included within the various sets. Hopefully it will assist with understanding the associated taxonomy notes.
