You may find some of the birds on this list may only be for that particular state. Each state has a few different laws and requirements. I live in Victoria and do not need a licence for Burt here, but if I were to move back to WA I would need a licence to keep him. I think WA may have the most restrictions but I am not positive on this. We can keep most native birds without a licence but some you must have a licence for no matter what.
