CBRA new checklist of birds of China was originally published in spring 2010. It is based on the IOC World Checklist and as such presents the most up-to-date information of bird species that have been recorded in China. The new checklist incorporates hundreds of updates, including new discoveries, vagrants and taxonomic changes. It provides the scientific, English and Chinese names of each species and has been edited by the editors of the China Bird Report book series.

Based on: China Bird Report. 2010. The CBR Checklist of Birds of China v2.0. Available at https://sites.google.com/site/cbrchinabirdlist/, accessed on 16 July 2011.

NB: Notes only allow up to 255 characters, but there is no enforcement of this. Anything longer will be truncated without warning.

NB: Species name for the old taxon should be updated to differentiate it from the split taxa using '[lumped]', e.g. Species A [lumped].

NB: Scientific should also be updated, using '[lumped]' or brackets for the old specific name, e.g. Genus specific [lumped] or Genus [specific] subspecific.
