"SA Magie" Native Fauna Tip by hennanights

Native Fauna, Adelaide: 8 reviews and 18 photos


Favorite thing: The magpie is considered a bit of a larrikin. They have been known to steal items, especially things that glitter. They add these treasures to their nest which they defend with gusto, swooping down on passing bye pedestrians. In spring its a common site to see people running waving their arms above their heads to ward them off. However the majority of the time they are quite shy and will not bother you. The magpie's loud musical flute like song called the warble. They can be heard at dawn singing which is lovely.
