How about 'cock' or 'cockerel', which are more common than 'rooster' where I live.

So, it's very sad that amongst all these lovely LIVE birds, the poor little North Island Brown Kiwi is sitting there all dead, stuffed, and stuck to a wooden mount! Might I direct you to a selection of photos of a living (and unbearably cute) North Island Brown Kiwi chick from which you might choose a new picture to use? I'm a big fan of the third from the bottom at https://nationalzoo.si.edu/animals/name-kiwi-chick, or you might like one from https://nationalzoo.si.edu/news/smithsonian-conservation-biology-institute-seeking-names-for-kiwi-chick, which gives a great sense of scale. The National Zoo is part of the US government and therefore these photos are in the public domain. P.S. Her name is Whetu, which means "star" in Maori. And yes, she was born right here in Washington, DC two years ago as part of the most successful North Island Brown Kiwi breeding program outside of New Zealand (the species is endangered).

TBH, the quail looks a little suspect too (if not extinct), but it's only the poor kiwi that's sitting there nailed to a TV tray.

Please accept the American names for two of these species. Ring-necked Pheasant for Common Pheasant and European Starling for Common Starling. The "Common" names are Old World.

The quiz accepted just plain: pheasant, starling, kiwi, etc. Why do you even need to use the exact name of the species shown or which hemisphere that name originated in? Keep it simple folks.

That's the weirdest looking blackbird I've ever seen...

It's a red-winged blackbird, one of the most common birds in the US. They often group with starlings and other blackbirds in the late winter and empty my bird feeders, but they are a bane to the rice farmers in this area who use noise cannons to try to scare them away from the fields just before harvest time. There are sometimes thousands of birds in the flocks and can decimate crops.

Red wing blackbirds are the worst. If you come anywhere near them, (which you often do as they like to build nests in the prairie grasses and weeds, like those right next to public walkways and sidewalks) they attack and dive bomb you like crazy.

A stuffed moa would have been an acceptable picture, being extinct, but a stuffed kiwi?? Every summer I go camping on an island which has 2,000 kiwi, we can hear them and see them near our tent at night.

Redwing blackbirds are fabulous. In Vancouver I once saw one mob a bald eagle in flight, for ten impressive minutes. If you want to see one picking on politicians, a jogger, a reporter, and a police officer, check out this footage from Parliament Hill in Ottawa. Cathartic!
