Meeting the Peewee

The Magpie-lark (Grallina cyanoleuca) is a very common suburban bird in Brisbane, it is often seen searching for food walking frantically across lawns, in pairs most of the times, if one is around usually the other is not far. I had the chance to study a breeding pair for a while and I was able to notice some very interesting things... matteogrilli.blogspot.com


  1. Great page!!! First time I ever saw one of these birds while on trip to Europe. Beautiful bird!!

  2. Matteo, it's so interesting to see how different these are from our American Eastern Woods Peewees. Common names just aren't as accurate as Latin ones!

    These are beautiful birds, thank you for sharing with us!

  3. Stunning, Matteo! How great that you had the opportunity to study them closer!
