The barn swallow is the national bird of Austria.

This is a list of the bird species recorded in Austria. The avifauna of Austria include a total of 430 species as of December 2017. Unless otherwise noted, the list is that of the Avifaunistic Commission of BirdLife Austria (Avifaunistische Kommission, AFK).[1] Of them, 101 are accidental and six have been introduced by humans. Eighteen species have not been recorded in the wild since 1950.

This list's taxonomic treatment (designation and sequence of orders, families and species) and nomenclature (English and scientific names) follow the conventions of The Clements Checklist of Birds of the World, 2018 edition.[2]

The following tags are used in the status column to define several categories of occurrence; the definitions are those of the AFK.

  • A: Accidental - species having "either less than 15 records in total or a maximum of 5 records [since 1997] irrespective of the total number of records"
  • H: Historical - "Recorded in a wild state in Austria only between 1800 and 31 December 1949."
  • I: Introduced - "Established in Austria as self-sustaining breeding species by man."
