Cornish Hen - Internal Temperature?

I'm cooking two Cornish Hens tomorrow and while they rest gently in the fridge, I got online to see about the best internal temperature. Bad idea! I read 155, 165 and 185 degrees Fahrenheit!

What is the optimal temperature for them? I'm thinking that it's a bird, like chicken, but is that so?
