Ain't common names fun.

Bananabird in northern NSW always referred to the Blue-faced Honeyeater.
Lewins Honeyeater was a new one for me.

Buln Buln is a Mallee Rickneck although it would appear that elsewhere this
may also be a Lyrebird. What the heck !

White-headed Water-hen a new one for me but must be Coot

Hopping Johnny I thought had to be an Apostlebird but babbler may also be a
possibility.  In northern NSW Apostlebirds were always Lousy Jacks.
