*AUSTRALIA ~ The White-winged Fairywren (Malurus leucopterus) is a species of passerine bird in the fairywren family Maluridae. It lives in the drier parts of central Australia; from central Queensland and South Australia across to Western Australia.
Looks prehistoric! One of the largest and most striking birds in the world--the Cassowary (Indo-Pacifc). This remarkable species can grow to 6 feet, weigh 120 lbs., and can easily kill a human. Beautiful but scary! (Cornell Lab of Ornithology)
