Throughout this year we have observed a magpie or two doing what magpies do. We have seen nests being built in preparation for babies, we have seen babies being fed (we think) and we have had conversations about magpies swooping and why they do this. So, it was with great excitement that we saw our baby magpie with it’s mother yesterday. The mum was teaching it how to look for worms and the dad was close by keeping an eye on things.
Have you seen any other magpie chicks around Barwon Heads?
Can you think of any words to describe the magpie chick?
