Mike, also refer to this site has a
series of db files that has taxonomic lists of birds, mammals, plants (?),
reptiles and butterflies.  Although the files were created for the Merlin
bird/animal database which *is* a commercial database, the creator has made
the lists available for free use.  They import readily into MSAccess.

There is a separate list for Oz birds.
