About the document
This list contains all extant bird species which have been recorded for Australia and its Territories, including Antarctica, Norfolk Island, Christmas Island and Cocos and Keeling Islands, with their respective RAOU numbers and band sizes as recommended by the Australian Bird and Bat Banding Scheme.
The list is in two parts:

Boles, RAOU Monograph 2, RAOU, Melbourne, for non-passerines; and The Directory of Australian Birds: Passerines (1999) by R. Schodde and I.J. Mason, CSIRO Publishing, Collingwood, for passerines.
Part 2 is in alphabetic order of common names.
