The Stanley Gibbons colour guide for stamp collectors No. 3333 is noted as a 
reference used in the Birds of the Harold Hall Australian Expeditions 1962 - 
70, British Museum (Natural History) 1974.

I have no idea whether it is the 'standard' reference or not,

Greetings all,

A major problem in describing colour in the plumage and soft parts of birds
is the huge range of colour subtleties found in our feathered friends. I
have read of a colour chart that is sometimes used, especially by museum
workers, as a standard reference for description of colours in birds. The
name eludes me so would anyone out there have info as to what this colour
chart is called and its availibility in Oz?
