The Italian sparrow is the national bird of Italy.

This is a list of the bird species recorded in Italy. The avifauna of Italy included a total of 557 species recorded in the wild by July 2019.[1] Of these species, 169 are accidental, 11 have been introduced by humans, and one has been extirpated.

This list's taxonomic treatment (designation and sequence of orders, families and species) and nomenclature (English and scientific names) are those of The Clements Checklist of Birds of the World, 2019 edition.[2]

The following tags have been used to highlight some categories of occurrence. The notes of population status, such as "endangered", apply to the worldwide population, not that only in Italy.

  • (A) Accidental - a species that rarely or accidentally occurs in Italy
  • (I) Introduced - a species introduced by humans directly or indirectly to Italy
