The updating of the Mongolian names to feature the new Inner Mongolian names from 内蒙古动物志 (第四卷 鸟纲 雀形目) -- Fauna Inner Mongolia (Volume 4 Aves Passerines) is now complete. Regrettably, the names found in this volume not only have many mistakes and misprints; they also form an often inconsistent patchwork incorporating Mongolian influence (often including names with no attempt at consistency), sometimes incorporating existing but hitherto excluded Inner Mongolian names, and rejecting some existing traditional names. The names are so bad that I've changed the notation "IM formerly" to "IM also".
