Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. This list of African birds is a listing of all the bird species known from the continent of Africa. The taxonomy of this list adheres to James Clements' Birds of the World: A Checklist, and reflects all changes to that work until July, 2005. Taxonomic changes are on-going. As more research is gathered from studies of distribution, behavior, and DNA, the order and number of families and species may change. Furthermore, different approaches to ornithological nomenclature have led to concurrent systems of classification (see Sibley-Ahlquist taxonomy). The area covered by this list is the same as the Africa region defined by the American Birding Association's listing rules. It includes Socotra in the Arabian Sea, S o Tom and Annobon in the Gulf of Guinea, and the Canary Islands, but excludes Madeira. The region does not include Madagascar or the Comoro Islands.
