Hi, I'll be reviewing this article for Good Article status. I'll go through and copyedit as I go - please revert any changes I make which accidentally change the meaning. I will jot questions below (if you don't understand any wiki-jargon I use, just ask! :)): Cheers, Casliber (talk · contribs) 08:33, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

  • You generally put the reference at the end of the text referenced. So is the last sentence of the second para of Taxonomy and Phylogeny section derived from footnote 4 too?
Yes, it is.
  • Any information on its closest relatives within Setophaga? This could be added to the Taxonomy and Phylogeny section.
I don't know where to find this information. Is there a reliable and updated source that you would recommend?
I'll take a look and see what I can find. found something - cheers, Casliber (talk · contribs) 05:38, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
Yep, thank you! Tianyi Cai (talk) 20:43, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Think about wikilinking more obscure, specific or complex terms, such as "phylogenetic", "subspecies", "coniferous-deciduous woodlands", states, cities or geographical features. Can "eastern islands" be linked anywhere?
Thank you for pointing that out. I have added a couple of more links.Tianyi Cai (talk) 04:42, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Try to rewrite as singular where possible to avoid flipping between singular and plural. Like this
I believe they are all in singular form now!Tianyi Cai (talk) 04:36, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Fix the [citation needed] tags. See how you can do duplicate links to same ref?
Fixed. Tianyi Cai (talk) 04:59, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
  • This is especially significant as it is an open-nesting species - can you add why?
Fixed. Tianyi Cai (talk) 04:59, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
Fixed now. Tianyi Cai (talk) 00:07, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

Right, now to look at the prose and some source checking. Will update soon. Casliber (talk · contribs) 05:56, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

  • The left testicle is most often times larger in size than the right one, - a number missing....

1. Well written?:

Prose quality:
Manual of Style compliance:

2. Factually accurate and verifiable?: (see comments at end)

References to sources:
Citations to reliable sources, where required:
No original research:

3. Broad in coverage?:

Major aspects:
Focused:

4. Reflects a neutral point of view?:

Fair representation without bias:

5. Reasonably stable?

No edit wars, etc. (Vandalism does not count against GA):

6. Illustrated by images, when possible and appropriate?:

Images are copyright tagged, and non-free images have fair use rationales:
Images are provided where possible and appropriate, with suitable captions:


Overall:

Pass or Fail: - some of the sources could do with wording a little more distant from the sourcing, which I did, and be careful that wording doesn't synthesise ideas not in sourcing, but other sources I spot-checked looked ok. Furthermore, some sources in the commented-out further reading section are worth exploring if this article were to be improved for FAC, but overall it qualifies for GA status now.
