Birders Totals

A fun page devoted to those that wish to record their totals within our region.  If you wish your total to be added simply email your tally to tonyp@bigpond.net.au  To be fair and consistent for the purposes of maintaining this list a few basic rules shall apply:

1. All species counted should be seen alive and in the wild
2. Geography includes Mainland Australia, its Territories or anywhere within the 200 NM limit (excluding Antarctica).
3. Taxonomy should follow IOC Taxonomy and recommended bird names within. http://www.worldbirdnames.org/ 
4. Submissions should be honest, accurate and dated.

IOC Australian Checklist
(includes all external Territories:  Heard, Macquarie, Norfolk, Lord Howe, Christmas and Cocos (keeling) Islands. Mainland Australia does not include Macquarie Island, Lord Howe Island, or Norfolk Island etc but does include the Torres Strait & Ashmore Reef).
