This quiz needs a major revision - for starters, the following birds occur in countries other than Australia, so are not "unique" to Australia (the correct term is actually "endemic"):

Kookaburra (in PNG)

Cassowary

Cockatoo (occurs all over Asia - many species!)

Magpie

Lorikeet

Honeyeater

Miner

Raven (occurs on most continents!)

Myna (not an Australian bird - introduced from India)

Sparrow (also not an Australian bird)

Finch

Robin

Fantail

Lark (Australia doesn't have any true larks!)

Silvereye

Wattlebird

Turtledove (another introduced species)

Koel

Pigeon (what sort of pigeon??)

Bulbul (also introduced)

Actually, only 6 of the birds in the answers are "unique" to Australia, but it would be more helpful if there correct names were used eg "Fairywren" could be Superb Fairywren, Splendid Fairywren, Red-backed Fairywren, etc (there are 11 species)
