Living on the edge of the Nerang Forest, we are privileged to hear and see lots of varieties of wildlife – birds such as kookaburras, lorikeets, galahs, pulvars, to name just a few. My favorite has always been the magpie. They are known to swoop in breeding season, but they say that if they know you, they won’t swoop. Well, I get feathered visitors most mornings, and only once has a magpie swooped me!

Here’s a pic of one, and a haiku I wrote about the inquisitive and intelligent Magpie.


Two feathered magpies

Sitting, singing, on a fence

Warbling a new day.
