Magpies

Magpies love them or hate them they are a very Australian Bird.

We had Magpies living harmoniously with us for years in the large tree on a neighbour’s property at the back of our place. The property sold and the new owners decided to cut the tree down.  The bird’s relocated to another tree across the front road. They were not very happy being kicked out of house and home.

My friend Irwin Lewis has a particular knack with the birds. Since Irwin now comes regularly to my studio to paint, the birds have been very friendly again. Magpies always make me think of Irwin.
