Talk about luck! My wife’s cousin works in Melbourne and he let us stay in his house on the edge of the Brisbane Ranges National Park. The house is on a sloping hillside surrounded by grassland which acts as a fire break and has a forested area towards the top of the slope. Not surprisingly, Australian Magpies were plentiful in number.
