Familiar Australians - Poem by Francis Duggan

So familiar to many and familiar to me
The dainty black and white birds that are known as pee wee
Or magpie lark or mudlark birds I often see
They build cup shaped mud nest on low branch of tree
Near where people reside they are happy to stay
They call out pee wee in the park every day
They are as well known as the magpie, the kookaburra or crow
Even to people of birdlife who of little seem to know
Even on the sidewalks of the big town street
These feathered Australians one is likely to meet
Insect eating birds at home in the countryside or the town parks
The often seen and often heard magpie larks
Like the magpie or kookaburra or pied currawong
Birds who are recognizable by sight or by song.
