I don't think that colour charts would be useful. There don't seem to be any standards in naming based on colour. Colour changes depending whether it is in the sun, shade, etc.

Look at RED. Red Knot, Red-capped Parrot, Red-capped Plover, Red-capped Robin, Red-winged Fairy-wren, Red-backed Fairy-wren, etc are all different shades.

RUFOUS - Rufous Whistler, Rufous-throated Honeyeater, Nankeen (Rufous) Night Heron are all different shades.
