Hi.

Very nice photo.

One question: are there three different subspecies of Goldcrest in the Azores, as exposed by Bannerman & Bannerman and other recent authors?

Dear Justin,

Thanks for the link. OK, I can see that the taxonomy of the Azorean Goldcrests considered by Bannerman & Bannerman in their monograph on the birds of the Azores at the end of the 60s is the same accepted in recent years.

When considering Azores Kinglet Regulus azoricus, see reference in Dutch Birding 28: 26-29, 2006, to paper by Päckert & Martens (2004) on goldcrest songs in Journal für Ornithology 145: 23-30 ('Song dialects on the Atlantic islands: goldcrests of the Azores (Regulus regulus azoricus, R. r. sanctae-mariae, R. c. inermis').

Hi again.

Thanks for your comments, Arnoud.

In the case of the Canary Islands, at this moment we consider Regulus teneriffae as a subspecies of R. regulus. On the other hand, there is another subspecies in the westernmost islands (El Hierro and La Palma), described some years ago: R. regulus ellenthalerae

Best regards.
