A couple of weeks ago she shared some magpie photos, which made me go back into my archives to find the few that I had taken back in 2010 when we were visiting Margaret River. This guys followed us around for ages, really curious to see what we where doing in his territory. At one point he even tried to get into our car.
I love magpies, they forage in our garden for grubs, or for twigs for their nest. Just this morning I saw a lone magpie take on, and chase away, 2 black cockatoos that got a little to close to her/his nest.
They have the most amazing singing voice, and call to each other, warbling away under the sprinkler on hot summer mornings, or sipping water from puddles left when the sprinkler has finished.
They may be only black and white birds, but each has a distinctive marking and the ones I love the best are the males with the solid white backs.
So today I am wearing black and white as my outfit when popping out to meet my son for lunch.
Call it my magpie inspired outfit.
Thanks for popping by xxx
