[RBG2017] Part 1: Magpie fledgelings

Australian Magpie (Cracticus tibicen / Gymnorhina tibicen) fledgelings

I encountered these Australian Magpie fledgelings sitting in the shade of a very small tree on a visit to the Royal Botanic Garden in Sydney.

Some taxonomists consider the Magpie to be a member of the butcherbird genus Cracticus. Others believe it belongs in its own monotypic genus, Gymnorhina.
