g'day all,
To add to this subject thread.
I often refer to early editions of  Neville W Cayley's "What Bird is that"
These editions provide both the source and pronunciation of the species "Scientific Name"
The later editions Revised and Enlarged by A.H.Chisholm, K.A.Hindwood and A.R. McGill.
are readily found in 2nd hand bookshops at prices as low as $10.
For those birdo's interested in Bird Names and who go browsing thru the 2nd hand bookshops, I suggest you also look out for J.D.Macdonald's "The Illustrated Dictionary of Australian Birds by Common Name". This book provides the known source of "Common Names".
Regards, Bob Forsyth, Mount Isa, NW Qld.
