The request for this thread listed it as a Division C event. The additional division has been added.

Hmm...does this mean that Herpetology will be an event next year? I wasn't sure if Invasives replaced Herp or not.

On the tentative SOSI schedule, it lists Herpetology, so I'd expect it's next. You can wait another two years for your birds :P .
