A Birder's Checklist of the Birds of the Pacific

Names cited in the body of the checklist without dates (eg "Lonsdale") refer to Trip Reports which have been posted on the Internet. These can be accessed in most cases by searching the Birdchat Archives (see "Links" on my Home Page) for the author's name and the geographic location. Citations with dates refer to sources listed below.
Two exceptions are the continually-updated taxonomy sites operated by Boyd and by Pehallurick; these are also cited without a year.
