I LIVE IN AUSTRALIA
The Australian magpie can be found in all across Australia in wooded grasslands.
I AM AN INSECTIVORE
An Australian magpie will search the ground for all types of insects and their larvae to consume.
AUSTRALIAN MAGPIES ARE SOCIAL
This species is a social species. They live in groups of up to 24 individuals; and all group members work together to defend the territory the groups live in.
Australian magpies are named gymnorhina tibicen for their singing. Tibicen means “flutist,” and these birds can be heard singing beautiful warbles early in the morning throughout rural Australian. Sometimes these musical sounds are performed by duets or even by groups of Australian magpies.
