The larger bird in the background is an Australian magpie. We saw them often in New Zealand as well. In the morning, their sounds are very melodious and varied. The two smaller birds are magpie larks.
Seen daily throughout trip, often with juvenile birds
It looks like it's dead, but isn't. It would lay down while the other bird groomed it. Pretty cute.
Mottled back indicates it is a juvenile
Next to the road between Mount Garnet and the Undara intersection.
One that kept swooping at my head as I hiked and had to be fended off with a branch.
Trying to join me for lunch.
