Pied Monarch looks part as king of the clowns

Finding Nemo made a star of a Clown Fish and Happy Feet did likewise for a dancing Penguin, so how about a major role for an aerial Pierrot, the Pied Monarch (Arses kaupi)? Looks the part for laughs, surely?

On the other hand, every bird has its serious side, though playing a part in this 'Jourama Party'.

Some players carry suggestion of a daunting character, as with White-browed Robin (Poecilodryas superciliosa). Not really so very supercilious, I reckon.

Pity the Dusky Honeyeater (Myzomela obscura), obscurely coloured and split now even from fellow honeyeaters as merely a myzomela.

But one can count on Macleay's Honeyeater (Xanthotis macleayanus) to turn seriousness on its head and come out smiling.
