348 species have been recorded for the Riverina area between 1940 and 2011. 291 were recorded by me between 1964 and 1972, 95 of which were banded at the Inland Fisheries Research Station, 23 banded elsewhere in the Riverina and 173 sight records. An additional 28 species were recorded over the 1962-78 period by other workers (A.Davies, J.Izzard, J.Hobbs, P.Wilson and other joint authors) giving a total or 319 species in the Riverina over that period. The more recent lists of the Bird Atlas I and 2 1988-2001 and the Bird Trails document up to 2011, which cover a large proportion of the areas covered in this study, add 29 species to the overall list making a total of 348 species.
