2023 Splits and Lumps with Nick Block

June 8, 2023

It’s split and lump season again, and that means that we turn to our friend Nick Block, professor of Biology at Stonehill College in Easton, Massachusetts. He’s the person we talk to when it comes to predicting the decisions of the American Ornithological Society’s North America Classification Committee. It’s another busy slate for this summer including a possible Western Flycatcher lump, splits to Northern Goshawk and Hepatic Tanager and more.

Also Black Birders Week wraps up another great year. And don’t forget to sign up for our ABA Community Weekend in San Francisco, California, next weekend!
