Looks like the swap is incomplete.

Can you explain why this needed to happen?

If you follow the links to the genera involved some of them have details. Genetic studies a few years ago show the new relationships. For example,

Can Phalacrocorax also be split then? Currently there are many disagreements because of this swap. And indeed it looks like they have not all updated yet

I've just committed the Phalacrocorax split, so old genus-level IDs should be updated over the next couple days or so.

@loarie similar (I think?) to what we saw on the recent Ruby-crowned Kinglet split, there are about 370 observations where all of the IDs have been updated but the taxon ID is still Phalacrocorax auritus 4265 and there is no community taxon: (these are not cases where the user is rejecting community taxon—there just isn't one).

Adding a new ID fixes them (e.g., Adding an annotation does not change anything (here I added an annotation of Evidence > Organism as a test: Adding a DQA somehow updates the taxon ID but does not update the community taxon, still leaving the observation in need of an additional confirming ID (here I added a "Organism is wild" vote:

In all I suppose 370 out of 90K+ ain't bad but FYI!

Edit: Hmm, looks like this is also pointed out here:
