A discussion group for the West Indies Checklist Working Group. The members of this working group are focused on the update and expansion of The Complete Checklist of the Birds of the West Indies! This checklist includes important details for all of the bird species observed in the West Indies, including abundance, seasonality, breeding status, endemism and establishment. Current efforts include incorporating recent records, adding subspecies information and the creation of regional checklists. 

The Caribbean is home to over 700 species of bird, including 171 species that are endemic to the region, found nowhere else in the world. This checklist is meant to provide a consistent and current view of the avifauna of the West Indies. 

The goal of The Checklist is to provide consistent, accurate and up-to-date information for use by researchers, conservationists and policy makers and taxonomically follows the current version of the Clements Checklist of birds of the world.
