Hi all,

I had a few questions regarding the number of bird species in Australia.

How many bird species have been sighted in mainland Australia and Tasmania (but 
excluding islands / territories like Christmas Island, Norfolk Island and Heard 
Island, etc.). 

How many bird species are resident in Australia? 

Is a bird considered a resident even if they visit for a few months (e.g. 
Papuan pitta). 

How many bird species are there in Australia excluding vagrants (that have only 
been seen once or a few times such as Eurasian hoopoe last sighted in Broome in 

Would love to hear everyone’s thoughts. 

Warm regards,

Charlie Hunter
