Move?

Any objection to moving this article to "Short-tailed parrot"? (The abc metadata is currently empty - will leave it till a move (or not) is decided.) Anton Sweeney 16:50, 22 September 2007 (CDT) Yes, check out other articles about species, they are mostly under the scientific name, except very well know species. Kim van der Linde 16:01, 23 September 2007 (CDT)

I like this as a suggestion of what the biology naming convention should be. It places the (precise) scientific name first, which keeps biologists happy. But it includes a user-friendly common English name of the species in the title, which increases findability. I think this is an excellent compromise. --Larry Sanger 12:35, 23 October 2007 (CDT)
