Birds of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East
This is the most up-to-date checklist of bird species and subspecies recorded in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, including Iran and the Arabian Peninsula – the ‘greater’ Western Palearctic. Species are presented in systematic order, and each species entry includes scientific and English names, taxonomic notes, distribution and range/vagrancy occurrences within the region.


Endemic to Australia, although New Zealand birders I spoke were convinched the introduction of the Black Swan into New Zealand was a mere re-introduction after the extinction of the species before the arrival of white men to the island.
