"Can anyone fill me in on the Linnaen Society?"
The local chapter of the Society has been active some time.
I replied direct to Denise but my Bibliography of Birding in NW and CW Qld includes this reference...
LINNEAN SOCIETY, Proceedings of Linnean Society of NSW
1877, Vol 1, P378-386, Le Compte de Castleneau  and E Pierson Ramsay
Notes of the collection of birds from the Norman River, Gulf of Carpentaria, with some descriptions of some new species.
They "secured"  (which is a euphemism for collected/shot/killed) 104 species !
Regards, Bob Forsyth, Mount Isa, NW Qld.
