Magpie -lark


I live in maribyrnong and have a wonderful array of Birdlife here.


There is a small bird that I have here and it is Black & White and is smaller than a Magpie, quite cute actually.

Can you tell me what it is please?

We have crows, Cockatoos, Lorakeets, willie wag tails, magpies and the little one I am asking about.

I look forward to you being able to answer my question.




Hi Coleen,

Firstly may I apologize for it taking me so long to answer your question!

From what I have observed and from what you describe I believe that the little black and white bird could possibly be a Magpie-lark.

You can read up about this little creature here...


I do hope that this helps you.

Kindest regards,

And Don't Forget To Be Sun Smart

You cannot feel or see UV (Ultraviolet radiation). We can see the sun's light and we can feel the sun's warmth (the infrared radiation). Our senses don't pick up on UV radiation and this is why it is so damaging.

Right across Australia this UV radiation varies, it being determined by the time of day, time of year, the weather including cloud cover, how close to the equator the position is and other considerable scientific factors.
