  1. This is a great shot of a maggy! I watched one yesterday do that funny trance of theirs - have you seen that Niel? Looks like they've just come out of the pub ha ha, head to the side, mouth open, staring in to space. I gather they are sun-bathing, but it's the freakiest type of sun-bathing I've ever seen, human or animal! Posted one month ago
    1. Thanks Ruth. I've actually seen one sit on a patio chair with its wings spread, soaking up the sun. Posted one month ago

The Australian magpie is a medium-sized black and white passerine bird native to Australia and southern New Guinea. Although once considered to be three separate species, it is now considered to be one, with nine recognised subspecies. A member of the Artamidae, the Australian magpie is placed in its own genus ''Gymnorhina'' and is most closely related to the black butcherbird.
