I had the same question.  If you include Cattle Egret, then in some parts of
Australia you probably need to include Crested Pigeon, Galah, corella sp., Sarus
Crane, Laughing Kookaburra, Sacred Ibis, Straw-necked Ibis, Rainbow Lorikeet,
etc, etc which have been introduced or have self introduced.

The inclusion of Ostrich was also interesting.  Should we also get rid of
chicken, duck, goose, turkey?
