The Australian Magpie Takes Australian Bird of the Year Title

The Guardian Australia has run their open “Australian Bird of the Year” poll from the 20th of November to the 9th of December this year, and while it was a close call between the winner and the Australian White Ibis a.k.a our beloved bin chicken, the poll ended with the Australian Magpie on top.

To learn a little more about the Australian magpie and delve into just why we love it so much, The Daily was joined by Professor Gisela Kaplan, emeritus professor in Animal Behavior at the University of New England and author of The Australian Magpie.
