Hi all,

There has been some recent discussion about the various lists available to 
people interested in Australian birds, so I thought it would be useful to 
publish a link to the BirdLife Australia 'working list'.

For those interested, it is worthwhile having a read of the FAQ section, as 
this explains why we have developed the list. In a nutshell, as a conservation 
organisation we need something that identifies birds at the finest taxonomic 
grain available to us, to allow us to identify, as far as possible, populations 
at risk, and to collect and manage our data accordingly.

Acknowledging that there are several checklists in use today, and that 
different groups, institutions and individuals use these in line with their own 
preferences and taxonomic philosophies (species concepts etc.), we have 
included for easy comparison classifications from the Christidis and Boles 
2008, IOC and Clements checklists. The list can be also be filtered to species 

We intend to publish the first update of the BirdLife Australia list on our 
website in December 2013.

All the best,

James O'Connor | Head of Research
