Hi Friends,


How many people are aware that the Australian Magpie has been transferred from Gymnorhina to Cracticus, as a result of Kearns, A.M., L. Joseph, and L.G. Cook (2013), A multilocus coalescent analysis of the speciational history of the Australo-Papuan butcherbirds and their allies, Mol.

Phylogenet. Evol. 66, 941-952.


So it's a Butcherbird!


Dr John Penhallurick
