For those interested, I want to point out that you can print off from the Birdlife Australia website a HANZAB index for common and one for scientific bird names. It gives volume and page numbers. Just go to the website and write in the search field "HANZAB index" and select what you want from the links to files that come up..

In 2009 Alastair Smith ( see his email to the chatline: managed to obtain the index from Oxford University Press and suggested to Birds Australia that they upload this index to their website.

Hopefully with no typos, I'm a reasonable though not perfect typist. It
shows formatted nicely on MS Word on my computer but hard to predict if that
will remain on someone else's computer. I can send it as a pdf too which
should retain formatting. I will send it out to all those who have requested
it (already or in future - I hope). Although soon I will be away for 3
weeks, so be patient if it looks like I've missed you. It was originally
done by Jack Moorhead and so includes some of his ideas as to groups. I have
changed it quite a lot from that, so it contains 2 sets of ideas. I know
birdos can be quite pedantic (including myself at times) but this is
designed just to be useful, within the realms of fitting one page, it is not
possible to be absolutely complete and accurate. Thus many obscure groups
are not mentioned. Some combinations are together because they are small
groups and some splits made purely because that is the way I think of them
(like honeyeaters are separated from chats). Even with that effort it still
requires basic bird group knowledge, such as that e.g. Emu-wrens are part of
"Fairy-wrens, etc" in V5, not part of "Heathwrens, etc" in V6. Anyway anyone
can choose to amend as they wish.
