  • 第  I  類﹕ 在香港有明確野生紀錄。
  • 第 IIA 類﹕ 中國東南部地區繁殖的鳥種,現時在香港的繁殖群落被認為是由逃逸的籠鳥所繁衍的,但亦可能在棲息地出現變化前已在香港出沒。
  • 第 IIB 類﹕ 非原居鳥種;經人為引入香港,現無需靠額外幫助已能繼續繁衍。
  • 第 IIC 類﹕ 曾經在香港有野生群落的鳥種。
  • 第 III 類﹕ 根據已發表所有香港紀錄顯示,此鳥種可能在飼養時逃逸或人為放生。

*第 III 類鳥種並非香港鳥類名錄正式確認的鳥種,香港鳥類名錄只包括第 I 類及第 II 類。

The species category definition is as follows:
  • Category I: species that have been recorded in an apparently wild state in HK.
  • Category IIA: southeast China breeding species, the currently established HK breeding population of which is considered to derive from captive stock, but which probably occurred in HK prior to habitat changes.
  • Category IIB: extralimital species that, although originally introduced to HK by man, maintain a regular feral breeding stock without necessary recourse to further introduction.
  • Category IIC: previously established feral species.
  • Category III: species for which all published HK records are considered likely to relate to birds that have escaped or have been released from captivity.

*Category III species do not form part of the official HK List which is only Category I and II species.
