I don't know of an electronic list but there's a good book which
lists most alternative names of Australian birds:
J.D.Macdonald "The Illustrated Dictionary of Australian Birds by
Common Name" (Reed). My copy is dated 1987 - don't know if there's a
more recent edition.
Lists some pretty obscure names!

Any good lists?
