    schema:description "The warbling and carolling of the Australian magpie are iconic, yet few of us recognise that the magpie ranks among the foremost songbirds of the world. Its impressive vocal abilities, its propensity to play and clown, and its willingness to interact with people make the magpie one of our most popular birds. Written by award-winning author Gisela Kaplan, one of Australia's leading authorities on animal behaviour and native birds, this second edition presents a fully updated and easy-to-read account of the behaviour of these birds. With new chapters on classification, cognition and caring for young, it reveals the extraordinary capabilities of the magpie, including its complex social behaviour. The author brings together much of what we know about the magpie's biology and behaviour, including her latest research on magpie vocalisation, as well as aspects of anatomy, physiology, development and health not published previously. This fascinating book has a wide appeal to bird lovers, amateur ornithologists and naturalists, as well as those with a scientific or professional interest in native birds, their communication, emotions and skills."@en ;
