Vasa parrots[edit]

I just came here having noticed that the Vasa parrots were missing from the template, intending to add them. However, I notice from the template history that Snowman removed them last year. Is there a specific reason for that? Are the Vasas no longer considered part of the Psittacini? If that's the case, the Psittacini article requires updating. Thanks... --Kurt Shaped Box (talk) 18:11, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

The parrot taxonomy is a mess. Most likely, the vasa's will become their own tribe as they are a separate group from the other Psittacini. -- Kim van der Linde at venus 20:05, 19 August 2010 (UTC)
Okay. Do you think that it's worth adding them back to the template until the Powers That Be decide to make that official? If not, the template should probably be removed from the Vasa articles... --Kurt Shaped Box (talk) 20:36, 19 August 2010 (UTC)
I think the best would be to remove it from the vasa parrots. It is really obvious an error to include them in this tribe. -- Kim van der Linde at venus 21:05, 19 August 2010 (UTC)
Aye, done it. If someone feels like reverting until the official announcement however, then I'm not going to push the issue... --Kurt Shaped Box (talk) 23:12, 19 August 2010 (UTC)
