Magpie Lark Grallina cyanoleuca

Magpie Larks are reasonably common in Tenterfield, often sighted in pairs or by themselves. The most commonly sighted gender is the male although females will be seen during breeding season.

Whilst down by the Tenterfield Creek recently I spotted this Magpie Lark (see video below) doing doughnuts in the water. I laughed. I had to view the video recording to see what it actually was doing, which was stirring up the water's bottom for insects.

A more recent video of a pair of Magpie Larks eating on the move on my front lawn.
