Magpies commence nest building

It’s mid-winter and our local Australian Magpies are busy building a nest.

This year their chosen location is high up in an elm tree opposite the Newstead Police Station.

  1. Funny you say that. Last Friday observed south of Kyabram, to us a Wedge-tail Eagle carrying a stick. Presumably for a nest. must check it out next time we are travelling that way again.
    Thanks for your Blog and sharing your knowledge to inspire us.
    Awesome.

    • Thanks for the note Rod – you’ve done well to see a ‘Wedgie’ like this. Great to learn they are breeding over that way. All the best, geoff
