The two magpies who visit us regularly brought their baby to meet us last week. We give them a few cat biscuits regularly and they seem to appreciate it, although Hattie does not.
This morning the three of them arrived again, and we got to see the mum feeding the baby, which is hardly any smaller than her. The baby couldn't pick up the biscuits, so mum picked them up and popped them into his gaping beak. Dad stood by proudly, and occasionally popped up into a tree to warble - which is what magpie dads do instead of blogging.
