Songzia




Mickey,
I believe Songzia is still classified in Order Gruiformes.
It may not even really be worthy of a whole family of its own, so maybe the family will be placed in the synonymy of Rallidae or some other family. Then we wouldn't have to worry about how to spell it.

Out of curiosity, what is Songzia exactly?
