Magpie Defends, 2017

Acrylic on canvas  
52 x 76 cm

"On a walk by the river, I see and hear two magpies squawking. I spot what they are carrying on about, there is a large Goanna on a tree and just above him is a nest, the magpies nest. The male magpie takes off vertically down the tree trunk at the goanna while the mother swoops from up above. The ruckus, stirs up the cockatoos in the neighbouring tree and the kangaroo’s resting in the trees shade decided to move on. Those magpies can be nasty." - Owen Lyons
