This splitting of hairs, whilst important, could lead us from the sublime 
(birds) to the ridiculous (INSERT YOUR OWN IDEA).

Isn't there something about international law that relates to embassies 
and consulates?  Could I add things like Woodpigeon, Great Tit and 
Jackdaw to my Aussie list while I wandered around the grounds of 
Australia House in London?  (I'm sure they only have concrete now that I 
think about it)

Can anyone else think of little bits of countries that turn up in 
unexpected places?

And who can boast the most obscure 'national' list?  There must be a few 
who have got to double figures in the Vatican State.  I have **2** species 
for Leichtenstein...
