As a user of the IOC checklist ( for my bird recording and as
the owner of 15 volumes of the Handbook of Birds of the World (hopefully 16
will arrive soon!) I have decided to cross reference the two. Since other
people may be interested I have put the resulting spreadsheet on line at (which I think may
be only valid for a week?)

Basically this cross references all species/subspecies with the
corresponding entries in the Internet Bird Collection (allowing for species
that one authority splits/lumps and the other doesn't) and provides a
reference to the relevant HBW page/volume and the IBC URL

Comments and corrections welcomed - with approx 30,000 subspecies in each
list there is no way I have checked them all manually, so it is largely the
result of computer matching!
