Produced in the same format as my other taxonomic checklists, this is my personal simplified version of the current IOC listing. The list will be used in conjunction with the “Taxonomy in Flux” (TiF) on-line checklist for my future naming and keywording requirements particularly at species, genus and family level, and taking a balanced view between the two lists when I make reference to bird orders.

This particular version shows 40 orders and 109 non-passerine families. At present, as with the TiF list, I have not looked at the families within the order PASSERIFORMES.

Please refer to my page entitled 'understanding bird orders and families' for further information.
