Actually the map is correct, just some wording is wrong due to a file error. The Paracel Islands belong to, but are nowhere near, China, however. the words China and Paracel Islands are the wrong way round in a file. The same applies to France and Tromelin Island. This should be rectified when the new app is released.
As for the Asian Glossy Starling, it was originally named Philippine Glossy Starling as that was where it was first recorded but since it is actually found throughout much of Asia it was renamed Asian Glossy Starling by some authorities.
