Dancing Duet~

Brighten your day as it did mine.. these amazing Magpie Larks who sing duets..and dance.. there is a video to watch that is enchanting.. more wonders of the natural world.. this time from Australia.. courtesy of the photography of Cindy Knoke.. beautiful.

The Royal Botanical Gardens in Sydney Australia are an urban bird paradise.

I found this pair of magpie larks singing and dancing happily in the park.

The name magpie lark is a misnomer as these handsome birds are neither magpies nor larks, but are members of the giant monarch flycatcher family.

Magpie larks are musical prodigies who sing co-ordinated duets together, timed by the metronomic movements of their synchronized dancing. See: http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20160803-the-strange-reason-magpie-larks-dance-when-nobody-is-looking

Cheers to you from the magical birdies of Oz~

  1. I followed the link to the video and my jaw dropped. I’ve heard this ‘call’ all my life but never realised it was /two/ birds making it. Thank you for teaching me something about my own home! I’m thrilled. 🙂
