Noooo!! They are evilll hahaha.. ok maybe not evil but I would get swooped by magpies every morning walking to school as a kid!
Hi! I’ve never been swooped, and I see them every day…Have you tried wearing a cap or a hat?
Oh this was in high school years ago. I used to walk through this one street with a book on my head. They usually swoop during their nesting season which is around Spring time.
Splendid, indeed! 🙂 Fabulous catch of a black and white in color!
Thanks so much, Keith 🙂
I wonder if you follow the old custom when you find a magpie on it’s own of reciting “Good Morning Mr. Magpie, I hope the family are well” to offset the bad luck part of the rhyme.
One for sorrow,
Two for joy…….

That not something that I do. Maybe it’s not an Australian custom, David. (I was aware of it thanks entirely to you.) 🙂
