The Magpie Larks

The magpie larks build their cup shaped nest of mud on fork of low branch of tree
And all through the day sing their song of pee wee
Of Australian birds amongst the better known
And of them one might say they have ways of their own
Birds that i do see and hear every day
They never migrate in their territories all year they do stay
I hear them sing every morning at daybreak
Their song of pee wee one could never mistake
Familiar to many and familiar to me
Dainty black and white birds i do often hear and see
With people nearby walking up and down
I have often seen them searching for insects on the street of the town
Known as magpie lark or mud-lark or pee wee by name
They seem happy to live near humans and are almost tame.
