The Magpie-Lark is a glossy black and white bird usually found in open timbered country near water, wetlands and gardens.

We have seen them in the Royal Botanical Gardens and sunning themselves in Centennial Park in Sydney.

We also observed this one foraging for worms for the family.

This one later on flew off with the beak full of worms for the nest.
