In today's episode...

Welcome back to the Goss here on the Aussie English podcast!

Today we are going to talk about Australia’s favorite bird!

In a poll conducted by The Guardian and BirdLife Australia, the superb fairywren was named Australia’s favorite bird.

Coming up second is the tawny frogmouth bird — remember Australia’s most Instagrammable bird episode? 

Several other lovely birds follow suit, including Canberra’s emblem bird, the gang gang cockatoo, and Alf’s favorite, the galah.

The bird you always hear here on the Aussie English podcast, the laughing kookaburra, made it to this year’s list.

And I bet you won’t fail to recognize the Australian magpie too!

Join today for an episode full of bird talk!
