Magpie in Contemplation

What next?

Is this Australian Magpie absorbed in contemplation?

What better place for thought than high in a gum-tree…

Maggie has chosen well, for just below is an area popular with picnickers. Many of these people seem more than happy to toss a tasty bite or two to the birds: Magpies included.

Enjoy!

The Cadging Magpie

Success!

Success!

I’m not sure which species holds the trophy for most prolific cadger in our local park. It’s a toss-up between the highly intelligent Magpie and the cheeky Noisy Miner.

I suppose that their impressive manner works in their favour, for I think that overall, Magpies have a slightly higher rate of success. Certainly this one has achieved exactly what it set out to do. 🙂
