Hi Bob and Birding-Ausers,

Just checked out the lists for Victoria, Australia and
New Zealand.  They are fairly accurate, with a few
species haveing been missed off.  However, towards the
end of each list completely ridiculous species start
to occur....

For example the New Zealand list includes such things

Black Butcherbird 
Mangrove Fantail 
Nuthatch Vanga 
Grey-winged Blackbird 
Rosy Starling 
Bali Myna 
Hill Swallow 
Santa Cruz White-eye 
Little Grassbird 
Wood Lark 
Saxaul Sparrow 
Paddyfield Pipit 
Mongolian Accentor 
Olive Warbler 
Golden-winged Grosbeak 
Antillean Siskin 
Hoary Redpoll 
Slaty Bunting 
Chestnut-breasted Bunting 

There seems to have been some sort of error involved
in the transfer of the lists from a database to the

I would therefore use any of the lists with a little
