I have totally fallen in love with Australia’s magpie. They’re singing is music to my ears so no wonder they are one of Australia’s most highly regarded songbirds. They’ve replaced my alarm clock as they wake me bright & early for their morning brekkie.
This beautiful quote is from Colin Thiele, Magpie Island.
“A magpie can be happy or sad: sometimes so happy that he sits on a high, high gum tree and rolls the sunrise around in his throat like beads of pink sunlight; and sometimes so sad that you would expect the tears to drip off his beak.”
