Fun Friday: Restful Magpies
I was going for a walk this week and came across what I thought was a die or dying magpie. Hating to see a creature in difficulties, I stopped and checked to see if the bird was ok.
The bird was still alive and blinking, so I took a couple of photos as one does!! Mr/Mrs/Miss Magpie looked quite relaxed and restful . . . certainly not dying from anything. It seemed to be enjoying lying in the sun. The bird was in a protected count yard where there are no cats or other predators, so these birds must feel very safe to lie around in the sun.
The other magpie got up when I walked over to investigate . . . thought better than resting whilst I looked on. As soon as I walked away the other bird got up, shakes its features and walks off. Probably annoyed that I had interrupted its rest and relaxation in the sun.
