Great quiz except that Emu picture is an Ostrich.... also can you accept Fairy Penguin for Little Penguin. And I strongly Recommend you change Peewee to Magpie Lark; nobody calls them Peewees anymore.

You're also wrong, it's a rhea not an ostrich or emu.

You have used a few localised names that are no longer the "official" names for these birds. Perhaps consider putting them in as alternative answers, please?

Peewee - Magpie-Lark (also accept Mudlark as it's called that in some states)

Plover - Masked Lapwing (accept 'Lapwing' - used to be called Spur-winged Plover but that's a middle-eastern bird)

Rainbow Lorikeet - please accept 'Lorikeet' as there are two very similar lorikeet species in Australia, though you are correct - this is a Rainbow.

Thanks for an Aussie birds photo quiz!

Everyone on the Gold Coast calls it a Rainbow Lorikeet,

Everyone knows a plover - swooping on teachers and kids

People usually call peewees mudlarks

Great quiz,

These birds I see all the time

Thanks for the quiz! I love birds so I'm very happy to see a quiz about Aussie birds. Some synonyms to add:

- Koobakurra: laughing kookaburra

- Magpie: Australian magpie

- Peewee: magpie-lark (this is the official name), peewit, mudlark, wee magpie, Murray magpie

- Pelican: Australian pelican

- Lyrebird: superb lyrebird, weringerong, woorail, bulln-bulln

- Butcherbird: grey butcherbird, gray butcherbird

- Cockatoo: cockie, cocky, sulphur-crested cockatoo, sulfur-crested cockatoo

- Fairy penguin: little penguin (this is the official name), blue penguin, little blue penguin, kororā

- Plover: lapwing, masked lapwing (this is the official name of the species). I suggest matching anything that contains either "lapwing" or "plover".
