The six 'missing' birds are the white-breasted white-eye
from Norfolk Island, whose disappearance was caused by rat predation; the western Victorian form of the pied currawong and the hooded robin from the Tiwi Islands, both decimated by changes in fire management practices; the thick-billed grasswren from Mice Springs and the southern form of the star finch that once occurred from Townsville to northern NSW, which were both affected by overgrazing; and the spotted quail-thrush from the Mt Lofty Ranges in South Australia, which was driven to probable extinction by habitat fragmentation.
