Magpie Lark, Mudlark Or Peewee - Poem by Francis Duggan

They build their cup shaped nest of mud on branch of tree
The birds known as magpie lark or mudlark or peewee
About them they have an endearing way
You hear them sing peewee all through the day
In Australia birds that everybody know
Larger than a thrush but smaller than a crow
Dainty black and white birds in rural paddocks or town or city park
You hear the peewee of the magpie lark
Of people they show very little fear
They only fly off if to them you come very near
Like sparrows them you are likely to meet
Searching for food along the city street
Since every day them I do hear and see
Familiar birds to many and to me.
