YOUR 'LIFE LIST'

If you want to keep a record of your Australian bird sightings (this is often called a 'Twitch List') you can download the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet Sightings Life List (17 pages - 100KB). When prompted click 'Save'.

Please note: The 'Sightings Life List' above does not conform with the Christidis and Boles (2008) Checklist, click here for their latest checklist

The spreadsheet has columns for you to record sightings on an ongoing basis or for specific trips. It has embedded formula that will total the number of species sighted in each column and over the life of your list. (The password for the locked cells is in the footer of the spreadsheet)
