Dear bird lovers,

Could you please help me identify the birds on this artwork by 'Wafae Ahalouch el Keriasti'?
I need to know their name and where they live. I numbered the birds for convenience.

Thank you all for advance 🙏
And greetings from the Netherlands!

Apparently from Morocco, and lives/works in Netherlands. Not that that seems to have any bearing on this, as all the birds seem to be artwork misappropriated randomly from the internet.
1. Scaly-feathered finch (southern Africa).
2. Lined seedeater (S America)?
3. Major Mitchell's cockatoo (Australia).
4. Domestic white form of something.
5. Java sparrow (Indonesia).
6. Double-collared seedeater (S America)?
7. One of the white-collared seedeaters (C America)?
8. African grey parrot (W/C Africa).
9. I guess montane widowbird (E Africa) - unless there's something in S America more like that.
10. Galah (Australia).

You just saved me a trip to the library and hours of going through books.
Thank you so much Butty 🙏

I have to give a lesson about this work at a Museum. And want to know as much as possible about this collage. Btw I found out the photo's aren't from internet but cut outs from postcards and magazines.

Poor Judge of Pasta.
6 & 7 look like vague approximations of Parrot-billed & White-throated Seedeaters. 4 could well be a white Java Sparrow.
