Passeriformes

This is an alternative classification for the Passeriformes to the one displayed in the Taxonomy in Flux Checklist, and is the one that used to be displayed in Wikipedia. However, the current version in Wikipedia now seems to reflect the status of the Taxonomy in Flux Checklist, hence the list below can be seen as out of date, and may at some point in the future be revised on these pages.
