Are these images of birds indigenous to China?

I like bird watching.  I lived in a wooded rural area in northern Michigan and kept four or five different bird feeders near the house in various locations along with suet.  Also kept a few bird houses.  I kept a book and recorded the different species and varieties of birds that visited and their particular migratory patterns.  The region where I lived has four definite and distinct seasons, and each season brought different species of birds... a lot passing through on their migrations North or South.  Through the year I had up to 30 different species passing through and naturally the native species stayed year round.  I particularly enjoyed the spring and summer months waking up to their calls, chatter and songs.  Probably the most exotic year round visitor was the huge prehistoric-looking Pileated Woodpecker... they didn't feed from the feeders but enjoyed the abundance of trees on the property.  Some predator birds were attracted by the field mice that were attracted to the spillage of bird feed on the ground... had plenty of hawks and owls.  In the spring, I would set out sliced oranges which attracted Orioles.  I was fortunate enough to have a nesting pair of Orioles build a nest in one of the trees... they build a very distinct and complicated nest.  I built a Purple Martin house which was beneficial in summer as Martins feed mainly on mosquitoes.  I'll post some images soon of my feathered friends.

The birds are mostly native to Australia, a couple from Sri Lanka and the subcontinent.
