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,
