Thanks for the BEST 8 lists folks. Most interesting. 

What about the rarest Australian bird you've seen? For me... Blue-faced

What about the hardest to see, although not uncommon or rare? For me...
Owlet-nightjars... The amount of times I've called them in with tapes or
my own impersonations, in suburban Sydney, and still never had a great
view, even though they're twenty feet away, is amazing! I've had them
fly several feet above my head in the gloom, but then vanish into the
foliage again. Frustrating, incredibly elsuive, but terrific!
