Australian Magpie

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.
