The Magpie is Australia's Bird of the Year

I looked out my window the other day to see a magpie proudly strutting through my backyard garden as if to say have you heard the news?
Magpies. They're a gardener's dream, a cyclist's nightmare, and according to the Guardian's poll, Australia's bird of the year.

"Magpies occupy the same territory for their entire life.
Once they find a suitable patch, they will stay there forever — up to 20 years, Darryl Jones from Griffith University told ABC's Off Track program.
"That area doesn't have to be very big, it might be just a couple of hectares or even less in the city," Professor Jones said.

Looks like I've got a new friend who will be hanging around the neighbourhood for a while.
