      hey that's really cool. Kind of makes a mockery of the name "magpie" though :D

      what is it with Gorge and white animals??? lol:D
    • Hix
      Gorge have a thing for white animals. They had at least a dozen white macropods (probably closer to two dozen individuals) in at least 4 different species, the white magpie, peafowl, white phase goshawk, and cream wombats. But the surprise for me was the almost all white Black Swan.

      As discussed in other threads, there is little conservation value in these animals (they are common species anyway) and inbreeding them is pointless in the long run anyway. but for a small privately-owned fauna park, they are a valid visitor drawcard.

      I was saying that because almost every photo I have seen from Gorge has at least got one white animal, and then this!

      There is also a cream southern hairy-nosed wombat.
    • Hix
      Actually, there are two.
    • Electus Parrot
      Wow two, I wonder where they obtained these from.
    • Jabiru96
      Possibly bred them?
