BirdsCaribbean is involved in conserving Caribbean birds and their habitats in the insular Caribbean (including Bermuda, the Bahamas and all islands within the Caribbean basin). They have recently produced a West Indies checklist, based on Clements taxonomy, and we recommend using this in place of their previous Greater Caribbean checklist.

The West Indies checklist covers the area defined by Raffaele et al. (1998) A Guide to the Birds of the West Indies, i.e. including the Bahama Islands, Turks and Caicos, the Greater Antilles, the Lesser Antilles (ending with Grenada in the south), Providencia and San Andres. It does not include Bermuda, Trinidad and Tobago, Aruba, Curaçao, Bonaire, and Swan Islands.

If you notice any errors with this list then please let us know.

NB: Species name for the old taxon should be updated to differentiate it from the split taxa using a '/' or '[group]', e.g. Species A/Species B or Species A [group].

NB: Scientific should also be updated similarly, e.g. Genus specific A/specific B or Genus specific A [group].

NB: Notes only allow up to 255 characters, but there is no enforcement of this. Anything longer will be truncated without warning.

NB: Species name for the old taxon should be updated to differentiate it from the split taxa using '[lumped]', e.g. Species A [lumped].

NB: Scientific should also be updated, using '[lumped]' or brackets for the old specific name, e.g. Genus specific [lumped] or Genus [specific] subspecific.

NB: Notes only allow up to 255 characters, but there is no enforcement of this. Anything longer will be truncated without warning.
