Back in May, I posted some photos of a pair of Magpies building a nest in a tree outside one of my windows. I’m very happy to report that the Magpie couple are now the proud parents of five offspring.
The baby birds are growing rapidly, and they now spend a lot of time out of the nest and sitting in the tree. They act very much like baby birds though when Mama or Papa return with food. They chirp loudly for their parents, and open their beaks wide so that they can be fed.
Mama and Papa still aren’t very happy when my kitty cat sits in the window watching the little family. They immediately come as close to the window as they can get, and squawk loudly at my kitty until she leaves. I don’t think my kitty will be very sad when the young Magpies decide to leave the nest for good, but I will miss them.
Here are some photos of the happy birdie family.
