The list of French birds used by BUBO Listing is derived from the website of the Ligue pour la Protection des Oiseaux (LPO). The official list, prepared by the Commission de l’Avifaune Française (CAF), comprises 554 species in categories A, B and C up to the end of June 2007, and was also published in the journal Ornithos (14-4: 234-246 (2007)).

Note that 17 additional species listed for category D of the French list are not included in BUBO Listing.

Although English and latin names are currently shown as standard within BUBO Listing, the French names of each species are also included and can be viewed upon data entry by hovering the mouse over the English name. Moreover, the French names are also listed below:
