Australian Bush Babies II
It's the land of parrots and honeyeaters, home to bowerbirds, megapodes and birds of paradise. Lyrebirds, emus and apostle birds are uniquely Australian.
Most of the world's cockatoos are Australian, and no continent other than South America has more parrots.
Also most of the songbirds belong to families not found on other continents (Australia is possible the birthplace of all the world's songbirds)- despite their names such as 'robin', 'magpie' and 'wren' given by homesick settlers in the early days of white colonisation.
