This website serves as the clearinghouse for keeping your Clements Checklist up to date. Because the Clements Checklist has become tightly interwoven with the taxonomy for eBird, the checklist now is referred to as the eBird/Clements Checklist. We invite input on known or suspected errors or updates at any time. extinct year – Reflects the year the species or subspecies went extinct (or, since the extinction date rarely is known with certainty, an approximation of the last year in which it was reported); “xxxx” is used when the date of extinction is not readily accessible. As before, we update the taxonomy and nomenclature of species for North America, based largely on decisions of the North American Checklist Committee (NACC), through the Sixtieth supplement to the American Ornithological Society’s Check-list of North American Birds (July 2019).
