It's only the two of them, and they come every afternoon for dinner. Ive refrained from posting on here for fear of 'jinxing' them lol.. last time i posted the 2nd baby was hit... Um Agvulpes ?

They have a long breeding season which varies in different parts of the country; in northern parts of Australia, they will breed between June and September, but not commence until August or September in cooler regions, and may continue until January in some alpine areas. The Australian Magpie is omnivorous, eating various items located at or near ground level including invertebrates such as earthworms, millipedes, snails, spiders and scorpions as well as a wide variety of insects—cockroaches, ants, beetles, moths and caterpillars and other larvae. New Miss, named Possy, swoops on the 2 kiddies riding their new bikes on our footpath and it is not any where near breeding season. To stay safe during swooping season, cyclists are advised get off their bike during an attack, and to keep calm instead of flailing -- which may come across as aggressive behavior and provoke the birds further. [28] The original form, known as the black-backed magpie and classified as Gymnorhina tibicen, has been split into four black-backed races: The white-backed magpie, originally described as Gymnorhina hypoleuca by John Gould in 1837, has also been split into races: The adult magpie ranges from 37 to 43 cm (14.5 to 17 in) in length with a 65–85 cm (25.5–33.5 in) wingspan, and weighing 220–350 g (7.8–12.3 oz).
