Here's our two bobs worth, our best 8 backyard birds
1.    Southern Cassowary - 11 years ago when we first moved in and had no garden - alas they are extinct in our area now.
2     Red-necked Crake - Heard frequently but only seen twice in 11 years.
3.    Bush-hen - Heard frequently seen more often, once walking over our shed!
4.    Rufous Owl - Heard at 0230 calling outside bedroom window - not seen
5.    Lesser Frigatebird - Blown over by a cyclone (real birds perch in trees)!
6.    Buff-breasted Paradise-Kingfisher - Flew into patio door, recovered and flew off, heard each year.
7.    Lovely Fairy-wren - Visits the bird bath regularly, they are lovely.
8.    Double-eyed Fig-Parrot - Fly over nearly every evening and even perch on our TV aerial.
