Sources

The records used in the Sub-Saharan country checklists have been compiled by The African Bird Club and Bob Dowsett and are from published and peer-reviewed works.

April 2011 revision

The following publications and documents have been used for the April 2011 revision: ABC Bulletins up to and including 17(2); ABC Checklist March 2010; Birds of Ethiopia and Eritrea; Birds of Zambia; Birds of South Africa revised checklist; Bulletin of the British Ornithological Club up to and including 130(4); 6th Cape Verde Bird Report; Go-South Bulletin for Morocco and Western Sahara; Honeyguide to 56(2); Malimbus up to and including 32(2); Scopus up to and including 28; Ostrich to 81(3).

A new checklist for Western Sahara has been included. The X=rejected records have been removed following a number of requests for this. The following country checklists have undergone major revisions: Cape Verde; Eritrea; Morocco; South Africa; Zambia.

January 2010 revision

The following publications and documents have been used for the January 2010 revision: ABC Bulletins up to and including 16(1); ABC Checklist May 2009; Birds of the Comores; Birds of Ethiopia and Eritrea; Bulletin of the British Ornithological Club up to and including 2006; Malimbus up to and including 31(1); Scopus up to and including 25.
