Hi John,
The answer is easy. Within the context of the quote that you were referring to, I made a value judgement that they were referring to regular inhabitants of Australia. To me "are found in Australia" refers to some sense of regularity, as in can be found in Australia. The Gurney's Eagle has I think one record and that most certainly does not qualify it as "are found in Australia". It is an accidental vagrant, not a resident. Besides Boigu Island (Torres Strait) is hardly Australia, except politically.
