Grey Honeyeater lives in Australia, as do Emus, so Grey Emutail would be a good link. But I've already played that, so let's do:

8733 Brown Emutail

Foxy is slang for attractive so...

8736. Beautiful Nuthatch

I've seen nuthatches in Kamchatka, and eBird shows records of Siberian Nuthatch there. But most sources I can see say that it's not the Siberian Nuthatch there, just regular ones. So I don't think I can claim Siberian unfortunately.

I'll follow this linkage to Richard Bohm another German ornithologist also born in Berlin who explored Africa at a similar time

The most famous person called Bohm was probably David Bohm, a theoretical physicist who concerned himself with the nature of reality. This next bird has been observed so little that one wonders whether it is real or not. Could it just be a colour morph of something else? Well, I went with two people from this forum to the Wild Yak Valley and we saw what we considered to be a female. It was very pale. The other two certainly considered that it was one of them. But we couldn't find a male. Anyway I'll play it:

8743 Sillem's Rosefinch

Love the link.
I'll try a bird that is quite similarly coloured on the back and body (buffy / cream) to the female Rosefinch
