Dear Ralph & Birding Ausers

You asked which edition of Cayley has the meanings of scientific names for Australian Birds. The Third Edition of "What Bird is That" has the meaning of the scientific names.  I know that ed was printed in 1959 and 1961.  I also know that the field edition does not have that content.

Happy birding.
