my current fave australian birds are:

Eastern Whipbird (coolest song/call)
Logrunner (best behaviour)
Magpie Lark (for character)
Supurb Fairy-wren (colour and character)
Diamond Firetail (most fashionable use of colour)
Wedge-tailed Shearwater (most beautiful flight)
Rainbow Bee-eater (nice any way you look at them)
Rose Robin (just a stunner)

for North America though, I'm biased towards our winter arctic 
birds...the best ones from the past few years while I was home were:

Great Grey Owl
Snowy Owl
Boreal Owl
Snow Buntings
King Eider
Ivory Gull (that one that showed up in Portland Maine last year)
Barrow's Goldeneye
Red-headed Woodpecker

and of course the cross cultureal ones:

Ruddy Turnstones (for behaviour)
Peregrine Falcon 

just out of curiosity, where are those south american lists?
