British Ornithologists' Union checklists


British Ornithologists' Union checklists

The British Ornithologists' Union checklists are a series of books published by the British Ornithologists' Union (BOU) documenting the status of bird in various regions of the world. Each volume contains a systematic list of bird species recorded in the area. In many cases the BOU checklist was the first such work for the country in question.
