On Australian Magpies

The beautiful warbling songs i so often does hear
Of the birds who do sing every day of the year
That they are amongst Australia's finest songsters of them cannot be denied
They live in town parks and in gardens and in the countryside
Though not corvids Australia's black and white songsters as magpies are known
And one can say of them they have ways of their own
I see them and hear their warbling notes every day
They are unmistakeable of them one can say
Earth worms and insects and mice they do eat
And small birds to them always a tasty treat
In their breeding Season they treat none as a friend
And even humans will attack their territories for to defend
At their nesting time they do often sing at night
And how pleasant to hear them warbling in the moonlight.
