The Brown Falcon in Australia has a dark 'teardrop' under it's eye as a distinguishing feature:

Exactly. This isn't a falcon. In addition to the missing teardrop mark this bird has yellow legs and a white iris (Brown falcons have grey legs and brown irides). There are also differences in posture and overall shape but they're harder to describe. But however you look at it, the depicted bird isn't a falcon (and not a Mississippi kite either). It's probably some kind of hawk.

Again with the European names. Please accept Dovekie for Little Auk.

In the USA, the "Little Auk" is known as a "Dovekie", so both answers should be enabled. Even most expert birders would not know it as an auk in US unless they'd been overseas.

Not an expert birder, American, only knew it as a little auk. Knew about it from reading the Little House books as a kid.

Only got Muscovy because our neighbors used to raise domesticated Muscovies. They liked them because they don't make a lot of noise like other ducks.

Please accept Toco toucan as a type-in for Toucan and make sure to change the picture for the falcon as the ID is incorrect.

According to a well-versed birder I consulted it is one of the chanting goshawk species, genus Melierax.

Wow that is what robin look like over in america??? look nothing like they look here, it looks more like a colored blackbird. While european robins look more like em well tits.

Maybe they just took the name and are not in any way related?

Ah looked it up and seems like I am correct the american robin is, like the blackbird a thrush (turdidae family). So in the same family. The european robin is an old world flycatcher (Muscicapidae)

That "brown falcon" is 100 million percent non a falcon. Where did you source that identification from? I'm not certain what its real species is, but I am certain that it is an accipitrid of some kind. Not a falconid. Look at the two groups online and you'll see how absolutely different and non-confusable they are. Accipitrids and falconids aren't even closely related according to current studies; falconids are most closely related to parrots and songbirds! Please change the image or find out what the real identity of the bird is.
