I think I'd have a different 8 each time asked, depending a bit on where
I'd been lately, or where I was dreaming about going.  I'll try for this
week's 8, in random order:

*       Painted Honeyeater
*       Southern Scrub-robin
*       Masked Owl
*       Australian Owlet-nightjar
*       Lesser Sooty Owl
*       Rufous Treecreeper
*       Paradise Riflebird
*       Chowchilla

Lots of passerines on my top 50 or so this was culled from - a bit of a
nocturnal fetish and two from one genus (Tyto) - but moderately
geographically balanced!  A second eight I hear you ask???

*       Diamond Firetail
*       Black Falcon
*       Grey Falcon
*       White-throated Nightjar
*       Red-capped Robin
*       Pied Butcherbird
*       Red-necked Avocet
*       Gilbert's Whistler

and why not a top 8 from elsewhere, just to take up extra bandwidth:

*       Tui
*       Rhinoceros Hornbill
*       Pale Blue Flycatcher
*       Ashy Drongo
*       Crimson Sunbird
*       Sunda Minivet
*       Coppersmith Barbet
*       Sunda Coucal
