A common sight in South Australia, the piping shrike, or white backed magpie, is easily recognisable by its black and white plumage.
It is the bird emblem of South Australia. Adapted to the urban environment the piping shrike has a sweet and melodious song.
The female shrike is fearless in defending her nest and young, known for swooping
and diving at potential intruders during the nesting season.
