The subjoined list is not the work of a scientific ornithologist,
but of one who has spent a good many hours in ambush,
an interested observer of the manners and customs of birds.
There are a few of those included in the list which are not of
common occurrence in the district above designated ; these
have been collated with specimens in the Museum, or with
Gould's descriptions and plates. The field of observation is
within a radius of a mile from the settlement at Koonya,
unless otherwise stated in a note. The classification is
adopted from " A Systematic List of Tasmanian Birds," by
Col. W. V. Legge, E. A., F.L.S.
