Magpie-larks are very common birds throughout most of Australia, including in the major cities. They typically ignore human beings and seem to think that cars are a species of tree. But they are very territorial when they see another Magpie-lark. So you often see them amusingly attacking their own reflection in car windows, mirrors or shiny hubcaps.
