BIRD NAMES IN CHINESE, JAPANESE, AND VIETNAMESE
LOG OF UPDATES

[Sibagu Vietnam]
[Sibagu Mongolia]

The cjvlang site originally went up in mid-July 2000. The Bird Names subsite began around October of that year. Pelecanidae and Accipitrinae were amongst the earliest pages to be completed. Despite a number of interruptions, work progressed steadily over the next two and a half years and the content was essentially complete by June 2003. Some time later, however, I found a large number of errors. These have been gradually rectified, although it is possible that some still remain.

During 2004 I incorporated a great deal of information from sources such as Howard & Moore 2003 in order to make the glossary more complete. Links were also added to photos on the Internet.

In 2005, the site was converted to Unicode.

In 2006 I added Southeast Asian birds (Mainland Southeast Asia only).

Little was done in 2007/2008, mainly as I was in Mongolia and away from my books.

From late 2008 I began a major overhaul. This is aimed at making data easier to manipulate and style, removing some of the contortions resulting from the dependence on multiple, sometimes incompatible sources, adding Mongolian names, and ultimately creating country lists rather than the current regional list in order to do justice to languages like Vietnamese and Mongolian, which only have species names for their own territories.

These update logs begin on 21 December 2003 (starting at the bottom).

Living in Ulaanbaatar meant that I didn't have my bird books with me, so no updates. I also wanted to spend a little time to try and learn Mongolian (abortive). At any rate, since I'm back in Beijing and have access to my books again, I can now resume improvements to the glossary.

I am finally starting to update the site again after a month of dramatic life-changes. The first order at the moment is to revise the Bird List to reflect the latest Howard and Moore checklist of birds of the world, published in 2003, which I recently got hold of.

I open the bird lists with great trepidation nowadays for fear of finding more unforgiveable errors. To the people who rely on them for accurate information (and there seem to be more and more of them), I offer my abject apologies. With this going-through, they are finally turning into something to be placed in public view with confidence. But a lot of small things need to be fixed before the glossary will be totally reliable, transparent, and easy to use.
