Is this page for Yellow-rumped Warbler (Setophaga coronata) or Myrtle Warbler (Setophaga coronata coronata)? Category:Setophaga coronata seems to be used for the former (as it should be), but this page seems to be used for the latter. There also is a Category:Setophaga auduboni, which should perhaps be renamed as Category:Setophaga coronata auduboni and reclassified as a subcategory of Category:Setophaga coronata. In addition, we may want to move some media from Category:Setophaga coronata to a Category:Setophaga coronata coronata, and from Setophaga coronata to a Setophaga coronata coronata. Also, interlanguage links don't seem consistent for Yellow-rumped Warbler vs. Myrtle Warbler, adding to the confusion. I made this edit earlier, but reverted it when I realized the issue was a lot more complicated. Is there a simple way to streamline all this and make it less confusing? Thanks. --Nandaro (talk) 22:43, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi Nandaro - it's for Myrtle Warbler Setophaga coronata; the en:wiki pages are out-of-date, as the old Yellow-rumped Warbler was split (scroll 2/3 way down) a couple of years ago into 3 species, Myrtle, Audubon's and Goldman's Warblers. Part of the problem with the en:wiki pages is that the local bird authorities within the USA have not yet taken up the split, so there has been less pressure for updating there.

Thank you for your quick response. Commons is OK then. I'll revise the descriptions for my photo of one of these birds accordingly. --Nandaro (talk) 02:00, 17 January 2014 (UTC)
