The verdict is in! The people have spoken, and their favourite animal sound is the sweet warbling of the Magpie. Swooping to a landslide victory in ABC’s National Science Week 2023 poll, with 36% of the vote, magpies won the hearts and ears of Australia.
Although the Koalas are pondering why their deep gurgles and growls didn’t make the cut, our spirited Koala Army Magpie is soaring with celebration! This victory is a reminder that all creatures of the bush, great and small, are important and should be cherished.
