I agree with John. It makes good sense to maintain two lists
an Inshore list that includes the mainland, Torres Strait Islands
and even Tasmania and any area within the 200 NM fishing limit.
an Offshore list that includes the above plus all the territories
Next we have to agree what taxonomy to follow. Surely it would
be the Christidis and Boles RAOU checklist as the standard reference
for Australian's? How many birders in Australia are members of
the American Birding Ass? and How many have even heard of Clements?
I think all the larger ornithological bodies have already committed
to this. The NSW FOC and QOS certainly have.
