Description

Excerpt from Check-List of Birds of the World, Vol. 8: A Continuation of the Work of James L. Peters; Tyrannidae, Pipridae, Cotingidae, Oxyruncidae, Phytotomidae, Pittidae, Philepittidae, Acanthisittidae, Menuridae, Atrichornithidae In the present volume, the subspecies of the New World species have been accepted uncritically as Zimmer had defined them in his manuscripts, unless they have been questioned in recent publications or in communications from colleagues. Zimmer was a meticulous scholar with an unequaled knowledge of South American birds, and it would have been pointless to duplicate his work. In fact, without his foundation, it is questionable whether anyone could have been found to tackle such a formidable task. For that reason this volume is dedicated to the late John Todd Zimmer.
