This afternoon I was doing a survey for the local landcare group with with a family (mother & 9 year old son were participantsin last term's birdwatching for beginners course I gave at the Community House, plus 6 year old daughter/sister tagged along).  While walking along the children began chatting about "Mini Magpies".  It took me a while to realise they meant Mudlarks (aka Magpie Larks in the books).  I think the kid's name is the best I've heard yet for this species!
