“The female Magpie-lark (Grallina cyanoleuca) was seen foraging for insects and grubs amongst the dry leaf litter by shuffling her feet in circles.
“The above video was documented in a leafy suburb in Perth, Australia.”

I loved the video of the Magpie Lark foraging in Perth. I also live in Perth and this bird is one of my common backyard birds too (in the south-of-the-river suburb of Bentley). It’s a remarkably friendly bird with a pleasant bell-like voice. I once nursed an injured youngster at home (until I realised it had a broken wing; I took it to Kanyana animal refuge then), feeding it on live worms (the tiny wriggly ones you can buy in petshops or fishing supply shops) – it became almost instantly tame and followed me around the living room like a devoted puppy!
Did it call you Mum, Iisa? 😉
Of course, of course, KM KF !

Who is KM KF? Don’t know this stranger
