It's the male bird that brings the worms, the female stays back ten or so feet and watches, she's not game enough to come any closer.

Surprise, surprise... Someone complained abou the deadly Aussie wildlife... Magpies in Oz are known to take out some eyes... Had quarter of my local park fenced off when they were in breeding season.

Living in the heat must make those magpies cranky. The magpies around here are clowns.

Every year there is something on the news about Magpie attacks around the cities. maybe it's the city traffic, that's enough to tick anyone off. laugh

I've never had one around here become territorial, same with Plovers. Often it's in city parks where the kids play and only in breeding season. The ones at home here have a nest at the moment. The one that comes up to me for cat biscuits has been doing it for a few years now.

The only birds I have seen attack people are cats birds and 1 cranky redtailed hawk.

Here's a picture of him on the ground, I have one somewhere with him on the table taking biscuits off me, but I can't find it at the moment. Are ours the same looking as yours?
