Australian Magpie Ornament

If the Grammy’s included birds, the Australian Magpie might just snag an award for best song. It has an array of complex vocalisations and when it sings its heart out it’s easy to forget that this bird instills fear in so many. From August to early October, magpie swooping season has many afraid as magpies defend their territory and nests. Smart birds, studies have shown that by being non-aggressive yourself, you can actually sway a magpie’s swooping behaviour favourably to you over time. So fear not. This official bird of South Australia is interested in becoming friends even if it started off on the wrong foot.
