STAWELL - Residents living in Cooper Street have been enjoying the company of an unusually coloured magpie of late.
Mary and Pat Browne have reported sighting a white magpie in the area and have the evidence to prove it, being fortunate enough to take a photograph of the bird.
The white magpie landed on the powerline in front of the Browne residence and Pat was quick to grab his camera to make the most of the opportunity.
This was the first time Pat and Mary had seen the magpie in the area and thought it may create interest among residents.
Sightings of a brown and white magpie in Houston Street were reported late last year and the magpie is back again this year, creating a topic of discussion among residents in that area as well.
