Calling in all Aussies who would love to see some of our glorious birds represented in a Wingspan expansion!

What do you think is a "must have" in such a venture?

Feel free to add your own ideas!

Wedge-tailed eagle.

Fish, rodents (and maybe a new food type - drones! Loads of videos of them destroying these on Youtube)

They can be a bit bitey, but they sure are stunning.

As an American who was fortunate enough to have lived in Australia for two years I have to say I was a bit disappointed when I realized all of the birds in the game were North American varieties. The birds in Australia really blew me away with their vivid colors and the numbers of different species.

As a paraglider I was fortunate enough to soar with a sea eagle once just a meter away from me off the coast of Tasmania. One of the highlights of my flying career. So that being said...

Not venomous, but the Rufous or Little Shrike Thrush are poisonous, like South American poison dart frog.

I knew there had to be something. Interesting that it's so plain colored though, as most(that I know of) poisonous/venomous animals are brightly colored.

I shan't be losing any sleep over this. The Rufous Thrush is pretty low down on the list of birds I want to eat.
