Frank Gill and
Mintern Minturn Wright’s Birds of the world: recommended English names (2006), produced on behalf of the International Ornithological Committee “to promote the use of a standard set of English names of the birds of the world,” is available in an online version. The Website includes downloadable Excel files of the lists; corrections and updates to the list (Version 1.0); and reviews (including links to blog posts), adoptions, and suggestions for improvement. The authors are also soliciting constructive feedback via email. I reviewed the hardcopy version of this book here.
