The magpies were in our backyard this afternoon.
(First photo taken through fly-wire door…hence softness)
Mum, swooped in quickly to within a few feet
of the back door.
Then…we heard it.
The young one squawking for a feed…
and it would not come and feed of its own accord.
Note: bread visible in bottom left corner.
this little sparrow came and helped itself to several
pieces of bread and all the while
the young magpie squawked for food.
There may have been a young a sparrow around…
but somehow, I doubt it.
