In the Whooper Swan the yellow area on the bill extends to a point.

When is a Bewick not a Bewick

I feel really lost with common names now! When did Bewick swan stop being Cygnus bewickii and become Cygnus columbianus? What has happened to the whistling swan which used to be C. columbianus? and where on earth did tundra swan come from? Answers on a postage stamp please.
