Today’s prompt…

Every day we are visited by a growing number of Magpies hoping we will throw them some crumbs. Often some at the back door and a couple more at the front.

Fortunately, no swoopers and they do sing beautifully for their supper šŸ™‚

  1. Poor things get such a bad press – they have such lovely plumage, sublime colours šŸ™‚

    • And here in Australia they are also the emblem for one of our Australian Rules Football teams – a team you either love or hate…passionately!

  2. it is such a wonderful sound!

    • Thank you – that was lovely. I wake up to Magpie songs most mornings. We live ten kilometres from town and it is wonderful having birds and kangaroos as our neighbours šŸ™‚

      • nothing like our magpies here….

      • Wow – that’s interesting. And another one of those little things that can spoil a story if you set it in another country and not realise that something you take for granted is different šŸ™‚ Thank you

  3. travel can broaden the bird repetoire!

    • The older I get the more fascinating I find them – took them for granted too much when I was younger, although perhaps also busy raising family etc šŸ™‚
