802 Australian Magpie-lark or Peewee

802 Australian Magpie-lark or Peewee - Photography by Liz Harman

The Peewee is smaller than and not easily confused with a magpie. The male (pictured) has a black throat, the female's is white. They build a tidy mud nest on a horizontal branch and in the breeding season may be often spotted attacking their image in a car's side mirror. This is the bird emblem of South Australia.
