Australian Magpie. “Just a Drop” catches a magpie drinking from a domestic water tap. The magpie, with variable pied plumage is familiar throughout Australia. All have a black throat and breast, with white under tail coverts and white under side to black outlined, black tipped tail, conspicuous in flight. Its voice is a familiar and renowned rich fluting yodel, subsong with mimicry.
Most of Australia’s wildlife is found nowhere else in the world, making its conservation even more important – 87% of our mammal species, 93% of reptiles and 45% of our bird species are found only in Australia.
