What's black and white and reared all over?


What's black and white and breeds all over Australia? Two right answers always prominent in Tyto.

First up, Willie Wagtail (Rhipidura leucophrys) takes a break from chasing prey out and about on water lilies. Not uncommon behaviour, but hard to capture up close.


Have also been stalking Magpie-larks (Grallina cyanoleuca), seeking flight pictures. But the few birds happy to have me tag along with them for a spell won't fly on demand.

At least the now sunny days bring out the gloss of nature's blacks and whites.

Hi Tony,
Lovely shots, but I have to set you straight! Neither of your 'blacks and whites' is reared in Tasmania, so not really reared "all over".

I particularly like the Willie on the water lily but perhaps that's due to my affinity with the swamp!

Hi John: You're right. I'll forgo any cruel refs to mainlands. Oops!

Hi Barbara: Nicest when there's some blue about the place.
