Can you identify these birds?

I found a selection of birds that now live in New Zealand, as I have posted some of these before, thought I would set a quiz.

  1. Great pictures. I only got 4 out of 10. And for the love of God or of me, I did not think that the first bird was one of my own Canadian type bird: Canada geese. Wow, what is it doing over there. I thought they only travelled south to the U.S. Anyway, great poll.
