There are many bird lists around.

The recognised list is that of Christidis and Boles, 1st Ed (C&B1).  Birds
Australia follow this list, so for example does COG.  This list can be found
on the Australian Museum website at: .

But C&B recently put out a 2nd Ed (C&B2 for short).  It is likely that in
due course this list will become the official Australian list (when it gets
endorsed by Birds Australia).  I know of at least 2 people who have put the
new C&B2 list on their website, namely Bill Jolly and Frank O'Connor.  The
latter also includes a list of birds for each Australian State and
Territory, plus some of her offshore territories  (these lists are still a
work in progress).  See:

for Frank - and

for Bill -  .

Although it is not on his website, Bill Jolly has also compiled a very
useful summary of the changes between C&B1 and C&B2 (most of which has been
include in emails sent to the BirdingAus chatline on 24/1 and 1/2.
