AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Great b&w photo of an unusual bird. The look in that bird's eye looks serious.

Beautiful b&w photo of the bird!

What a GREAT photo! But these birds must have the most 'common' names of any! As well as pee-wee, they're known as Murray Magpie or Mudlark depending where you are in OZ!
