Ten random things: Reader Request Month, day 12

Ten birds that are not indigenous to Australia:

  1. Southern Screamer (Chauna torquata)
  2. Von der Decken's Hornbill (Tockus deckeni)
  3. Spix's Guan (Penelope jacquacu)
  4. Purplish Jacamar (Galbula chalcothorax)
  5. Yellow-rumped Honeyguide (Indicator xanthonotus)
  6. Helmeted Guineafowl (Numida meleagris)
  7. Plain Titmouse (Parus inornatus)
  8. Green Woodhoopoe (Phoeniculus purpureus)
  9. Greater Rhea (Rhea americana)
  10. Undulated Tinamou (Crypturellus undulatus)

This list was inspired by brooding_soul, who asked to see the Australian titmouse featured in a list. Unfortunately, the titmouse is not an Australian species, so I had to improvise.
