12:20 AM and I have been checking emails for the past 30 minutes and the Magpies, I think the pair building a nest in my big eucalypt, have been singing the whole time. It is a clear sky with a 2/3 moon.

Philip et al,

The last week or so I've noticed the nighttime Magpie has started up here in Higgins, as well.  Sort of nice being greeted by that when opening the bathroom door in the middle of the night (can't hear it in the bedroom, but can't miss it as soon as you enter the bathroom in our house.  Regardless of time of night, it is always warbling every night now.
