Default Common Gallinule or Moorhen

I read that these are starting to be called Moorhen in the US to match the rest of the world but I still see little evidence on US sites.

They used to be called Moorhens but I haven't seen any announcement of a change back. Still listed as Common Gallinule on Cornell https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Common_Moorhen/id

Nice shots Bill. Here is a bit from Wikipedia

The common gallinule (Gallinula galeata) is a bird in the family Rallidae. It was split from the common moorhen by the American Ornithologists' Union in July 2011.

Very nice shots Bill, but not like the Moorhen or Gallinule I see in my part of the world, but they are more like the Moorhen then Gallinule
