Footnotes:

  1. The Passeriformes, or perching birds, include the majority of world bird species; parrots are the sister group of the perching birds (Hackett et al. 2008)
  2. Follow AOU 1998 in recognizing silky flycatchers as a separate family Ptilogonatidae
  3. Separate Grey Hypocolius as monotypic family Hypocoliidae to be consistent with treatment of other enigmatic waxwing relatives
  4. Accept appeal to use broadly used name Grey Hypocolius
  5. Species of Moho are related to waxwings (Bombycillidae), not to honeyeaters (Meliphagidae) (Fleischer et al. 2008)
  6. Yellow-flanked Whistler (Hylocitrea) is related to the waxwings, not whistlers (Spellman et al 2008)
  7. Stenostiridae includes Stenostira and Elminia from Incertae Sedis and Culcicapa from Muscicapidae (Barker et al. 2002, 2004; Beresford et al. 2005; Fuchs et al. 2006)
  8. RESEQUENCED: Yellow-bellied Fantail is a close relative of the Fairy Flycatcher (Stenostiridae) ( Nyari et al 2009)
  9. CORRECT: English name of Stenostira scita to Fairy Flycatcher
  10. Transfer Dusky Crested Flycatcher, White-bellied Crested Flycatcher, & White-tailed Crested Flycatcher from Trochocercus to Elminia (Dickinson 2003, Sinclair & Ryan 2003, Coates et al 2006 )
  11. Poecile hypermelaenus is split from P. palustris (Eck & Martens 2006)

  17. Parus bokharensis is conspecific with P. major(Päckert et al. 2005, Eck & Martens 2006, Collar 2007)
  18. Parus minor is split from P. major (Päckert et al. 2005, Eck & Martens 2006, Collar 2007)
  19. Parus cinereus is split from P. major (Päckert et al. 2005 , Eck & Martens 2006, Collar 2007).
  20. CHANGE: English name of Parus xanthogenys to (Himalayan) Black-lored Tit, with split of P. aplonotus
  21. Parus aplonotus including subspecies travancoreensis is split from P. xanthogenys (Rasmussen & Anderton 2005)
  22. CHANGE: English name of Parus humilus to more appropriate Ground Tit as adopted in other major works
  23. CHANGE: English name of Cyanistes caeruleus to (Eurasian) Blue Tit with split of C. teneriffae
  24. Cyanistes teneriffae is split from C. caeruleus (Salzburger et al. 2002).
  25. Central Asian flavipectus are treated as a subspecies of Azure Tit.
  26. Remiz macronyx is split from R.pendulinus (Madge 2008)
  27. Remiz consobrinus is recognized by Madge (2008), not conspecific with R. coronatus (Eck & Martens 2006, Collar 2007)
  28. Bearded Reedling is not related to parrotbills, but is sister to the larks (Alaudidae) and in turn to the rest of the Sylvioidea (Ericson and Johansson 2003; Alström et al. 2006; Fuchs et al. 2006)
  29. Move Nicator species from Incertae Sedis to Nicatoridae, which aligns with Alaudidae and Panuridae to form a basal trichotomy that is sister to the rest of the rest of the sylvioids (Beresford et al 2005, Johansson et al 2008)
  30. Beresford et al 2005; Johansson et al 2008
