It’s swooping season in Australia, which means the magpies go insane and start attacking people who get too close to their nests.
However, we have the opposite problem. A family of magpies has decided they’re our pets, and now spend all day on the back deck, singing, like they’re busking for snacks! If we don’t rush inside and close all the doors they’ll just walk right on into the house.
They really do have two legs each; they just like standing on one while they sing for a reason I do not understand!
Silly things. This happens quite a lot of years, but it’s usually one bird, not three.
