This is the first year I've seen magpies in my yard. For several weeks, they've rocked small limbs and pestered squirrels while they remain firmly in possession. With long tales and clearly defined black-and-white feathers, magpies race past the windows, bathe in rain puddles and shake themselves dry in the surrounding pines. I'm pleased they've chosen to anchor here for now.
Do you have magpies in your world?
