Can you guess? It's Australian and it's black & white. It was voted Australia's second favourite bird, after the Superb Fairy-wren. You have probably already guessed it, it's the magpie, or often referred to by their name of endearment, maggies.

Australian Magpies are found throughout Australia, including Tasmania, where I live. The distinctive melodic birdsong of the magpie is synonymous with Australia and the Australian bush. It's a special way to start the morning, hearing their melodious, songlike greeting when you are lying in bed.
I've had fun painting a new bird and plan on painting them again.
Thanks for visiting and I hope that your week's mornings commence with comforting birdsong melodies.
Cheers, from PJ Paintings
