Catalogue d'oiseaux

Only a few days ago I discovered Messiaen and his "Catalogue d'oiseaux".

Here are the titles of its 13 parts:

1. Le chocard des alpes (Alpine chough)
2. Le loriot (Golden oriole)
3. Le merle bleu (Blue rock thrush)
4. Le traquet stapazin (Black-eared wheatear) 
5. La chouette hulotte (Tawny owl) 
6. L'alouette lulu (Woodlark) 
7.  La rousserolle effarvatte (Reed warbler) 
8.  L'alouette calandrelle (Short-toed lark) 
9. La bouscarle (Cetti's warbler)
10. Le merle de roche (Rock thrush) 
11. La buse variable (Buzzard) 
12. Le traquet rieur (Black wheatear) 
13. Le courlis cendré (Curlew)

According to the subtitle the work represents: "Bird-songs of the French provinces. Each soloist is presented in its habitat, surrounded by its landscape and by the songs of other birds (77 in all) from the region."

Can anyone help me spot any of the 77 other birds? Is there a list somewhere?

Thanks in advance!
