So I was down by the dam looking for some waterbirds to photograph and found a family of magpies and a rather amusing juvenile sitting on a wooden seat, so here is the story.

It was rather exciting as I hadn’t seen this type of frog before, even though its a rather common one in Queensland.

Australian magpies are a beautiful, intelligent birds and very fun to watch, but they get a bad reputation around nesting time. This one was photographed at the back of the BBQ area at Possum Park and had no interest in me in the slightest.

Well this is one of my favourite birds purely because of there comical antics they get up to if they like you. Be warned however if they take a disliking to you they can be pure evil
