Taxonomic Swap 117729 (Committed on 12-01-2022)

Genetic evidence indicates that Malagasy Turtle-Dove is sister to Pink Pigeon Nesoenas mayeri (Johnson et al. 2001, 2010), and the vocalizations of these two species also are very similar (Woolfenden et al. 2015); therefore we transfer Malagasy Turtle-Dove to Nesoenas. Change the scientific name from Streptopelia picturata to Nesoenas picturatus. Reposition Malagasy Turtle-Dove to immediately follow Passenger Pigeon Ectopistes migratorius.
