In this list of New Zealand birds, Māori names (where known) are given first, followed by English alternatives. In some cases (Tui, Kākā, Weka, Pūkeko, moa, kiwi, Kea, Kōkako, Takahē) the Māori name is the common name. In other cases (fantail, albatross, Black-backed Gull, bellbird, Morepork, dotterel, Wax-eye, oystercatcher) the English name is most commonly used.

The species and subspecies marked extinct became extinct subsequent to humans' arrival in New Zealand. About two thirds of the extinctions occurred after the arrival of Māori but before the arrival of Pākehā and the rest since Pākehā arrived.

In June 2010 the 4th Edition of the Checklist of the birds of New Zealand and the Ross Dependency, Antarctica was published by Te Papa Press, in association with the Ornithological Society of New Zealand.
