N.B. The above list is a simplified replica of "A World Checklist of Birds" by B.L.Monroe, Jr. and C.G. Sibley, 1993, based on the research by Sibley and J. Ahlquist using DNA hybridization method. As you can see, categorization in the bird sector is loosely in line with the taxonomical listing proposed by Sibley-Ahlquist-Monroe. Similarly, English & scientific names of species used in this site are based on the said book.
