Good of you to let us know but the important thing is to let THEM (those that goofed) know! Like the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation that had used the American Bald Eagle Haliaetus leucocephalus in their emblem. Fortunately, (some time) after I expressed my amazement and disappointment to them, they have changed it to a Wedge-tailed Eagle.

Now that I have got your attention. I was just shown a brochure on the
environmental values of a development at Port Macquarie. Another case of a
pretty picture being used to fool the uneducated.
This website ( has
a very small picture of the bird, but the brochure has a full blown picture
of a Roller (possibly European, but more likely one of the African
long-tailed species). Certainly not at Port Macquarie.
Made me laugh on a Friday afternoon.
