Australian magpie

Currently working on some sketches of Australian bird species. The Australian magpie is famous for its beautiful warbling song and, despite its unfortunate reputation for dive bombing pedestrians (only 10% of males do this and only during nesting time), it won BirdLife Australia's Bird of the Year prize in 2017.
