The bird is a Magpie.

It is midwinter here in Australia but where I live (SE Queensland), it has been about 18-20 degC during the day and down to about 2 degC at night.

Steady 24 degC all day and night where I am sitting in my "engine room". Have the aircon on all the time. I have a back problem that kills me if I get cold.

18 - 20 deg C = 64.4 - 68 F
2 deg C = 3.6 F
24 deg C = 75.2 F

The warbling and carolling of the Australian magpie are familiar to many although few of us recognise that it ranks among the foremost songbirds of the world. Its impressive vocal abilities, its propensity to play and clown, and its willingness to interact with people, make the magpie one of our most well-known birds.

He's a lovely creature and while I'm not a 'birder' myself a friend of mine is. Have sent him a link to all the bird songs so thanks for the photo wildchild2 and the great link buddy215.
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.
