'Australian (Western) Magpie' (Cracticus tibicen dorsalis)
One of the real favourite birds of the South West of Western Australia, the Western Magpie can be observed in bushland, open paddocks and in urban areas including household gardens. These magpies get around either as pairs in small groups of about 10 or 12 birds. Such flocks will often include mature adults as well as a few immature birds which have more mottled and grey pattern on their front and back. They eat mainly insects, small reptiles, frogs and many types of seeds and are well known for their beautiful carolling in the evenings. Magpies typically live for about five years but sometimes around 20 years.
