A friend has argued that as the Australian Magpie is not related to the European Magpie then we can use names of European birds for other native birds. My view is that we should change the name from 'Australian Magpie' to 'Ground Butcherbird' which is apparently what it is. I am running and ducking as I sign off!!!!
And ducked in running water is what he should be. It's a "Black and white piping crow-shrike".
