Current species list may not be up to date. Updated 2017.

Some other species are not listed, usually if we hold only one pair, and/or we only swap a species' young to make up unrelated pairs.

Check our links page for Cites and IUCN listings for the population /endangered status of these species. Also the Australian Government's '2007 Inventory of Exotic (non-native) Bird Species known to be in Australia' which rates exotic aviary birds into Classes 1, 2, and 3, based on the Australian Government's opinion of their 'pest potential' to agriculture and supposedly the environment.
