Victorian List

Below is a list of the 514 bird species recorded in Victoria and accepted by VORAC following IOC taxonomy. Also includes known subspecies . In addition there is a supplementary list of unconfirmed/withdrawn or introduced birds which no longer have a viable population. Original list compiled by Rob Farnes and Peter Lansley with contributions from a number of other Victorian Birders. 

Pelagic boundary

In reality actual State jurisdiction extends only 3 nautical miles from coast but this impractical for our purposes. The issue further complicated by proximity to Tasmania. For this list we have determined that the Victorian pelagic boundary be an extension of existing state land boundaries to the east and west, bounded to south by latitude 39°12′. See map below. Only species recorded within this area will be considered for review.
