To celebrate Bird Week, BirdLife Australia held a poll of 52 common birds to determine the country’s favorite feathered friend. According to the Guardian, the superb fairy-wren took the honors, just flying past the Australian magpie. More than 8,000 votes were cast, and other birds in the top 10 include the laughing kookaburra, rainbow lorikeet and galah.
