I would like to thank Imam Taufiqurrahman for his guidance and to Swiss Winnassis for providing me with shelter, internet connection and references books during the writing process–all of which happened when I was trapped in his hometown due to COVID-19. Also thanks to Dewi Prawiradilaga, Bas van Balen, Francisca Noni, Sitta Y. Azizah, Rahmadiyono Widodo, Khaleb Yordan, Iwan Febriyanto, Aronika Kaban and other members from the Indonesia Bird Banding Society, Pengamat Burung Indonesia, and Paguyuban Pengamat Burung Jogja for sharing data regarding this species' measurement and other anecdotal records; also to every editor of Birds of the World for giving me the opportunity to be part of this project and all the guidance during writing and editing process.
