This is a partial list of birds in my area. Where there is no link, I have no pictures.

Where I am aware of local (Yuin language group) First People names for some of these places, animals or birds, I have started to add them - eg Australian Brush Turkey (Djera). Within the language group (coastal/mountains South Eastern Australia), there were a number of dialects - but the names were reasonably similar.
