Taxonomic Split 133047 (Guardado el 31/10/2023)

Yellow-billed Egret Ardea brachyrhyncha and Plumed Egret A. plumifera are split from Medium (formerly Intermediate) Egret A. intermedia (Clements 2007:20)

Summary: The mid-sized white egrets distributed in Africa, Asia, and Australia are readily identified on their breeding grounds and are now recognized as different species. Their non-breeding ranges are not entirely known and vagrant individuals may pose identification challenges.

I think we could pull the plug on that one.
The split is pretty straightforward geographically and only about 15 observations are in overlapping areas in Indonesia. Most observations outside of the atlases are misidentified egrets from the Americas.
If you could have a look at the atlases one last time before committing, that would be fantastic!
In the meantime I will validate the switches from the subspecies to the new species.

Have looked at the atlases - I removed Oman and USA from the atlas for intermedia. Oman as although not mentioned in the ebird notes, it's next to Saudi Arabia, and the USA as it's not part of the range and the IDs there are also misidentifications of other spp. Looks fine to commit.

OK then, I will commit, starting with the ssp.
