Yes of course there is a full index to HANZAB. However that serves an entirely different purpose to what I have done. My problem was always of the sort "are finches in 7A or 7B........"  The page number for any species is irrelevant until AFTER the book is in my hand. My list is simply an easy guide to attach to the bookshelf to help quickly find which, out of 9 large books to take from the bookshelf to find a bird (then if needed go to the index, but I find having selected the right book, I almost never need to use the index, it is much quicker for me to just flip through the pages).  The full index mentioned is many pages and is not something that can easily be attached to the front of the book shelf. 
I will send my 1 page guide to anyone who wants it.

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.
