Magpie-lark

This is a bird I miss a lot in Tasmania. Magpie-Larks are friendly and communicative. They sing in duets and are among my favorite Australians.
The male, female and juvenile birds are easily distinguished by their colors. Above you can see a female and below is a male. Both photos were taken in Melbourne.
Below is another female Magpie-lark, but this time in Sydney.
And the photo below shows a father feeding a young chick. Blurry, out of focus pictures like this one made me want to buy a DSLR long time ago. If I could only not miss all those moments... !
