Magpies are common and widely distributed through most of Australia, especially around farmland and urban areas. With a beautiful song, a relish for eating many harmful insect pests and the bird's bold nature have made the magpie popular with the suburban gardener and other bird lovers. Australian magpies are often found in relatively open gardens, and sometimes become quite tame in suburban areas.
