HANZAB Taxonomy

For sources used to compile the taxonomy below and treatment of conflicts see notes after the taxonomy.

The taxonomy above is derived from the following sources:

  • Working List of Australian Birds (Birdlife Australia Version 4.1), referenced as WLAB 4.1;
  • Checklist of the Birds of New Zealand, Fifth Edition, 2022 (Ornithological Society of New Zealand) referenced as NZCL 2022;
  • Birdlife International datazone website for species recorded in Antarctica, French Southern territories, Heard and MacDonald islands, Bouvet Island, and South Georgia and Sandwich Island (Accessed 23 March 2023); and
  • for extralimital subspecies, HBW and BirdLife International (2022) Handbook of the Birds of the World and BirdLife International digital checklist of the birds of the world. Version 7. Available at: http://datazone.birdlife.org/userfiles/file/Species/Taxonomy/HBW-BirdLife_Checklist_v7_Dec22.zip, referenced as BLI 2022.

Where the treatment varies between these sources, it may be noted by comments in the text or by presenting each variation with comments. Eg. subspecies cooki of Red-fronted Parakeet Cyanoramphus novaezelandiae in WLAB 4.1 is elevated to species level (Norfolk Island Parakeet Cyanoramphus cookii) in NZCL 2022. See Taxonomic changes since HANZAB book published in Red-crowned Parakeet (the NZCL 2022 name for Red-fronted Parakeet) or HANZAB Index+ for the treatment adopted.
