You can download and print a checklist for South Sudan.
A checklist of birds of south Sudan can also be found at NIKOLAUS, G. (1989) and a distribution atlas of Sudan’s birds at NIKOLAUS, G. (1987). This latter reference shows sightings for each species on a map of Sudan with associated comments and remarks.
