It is on days like today I wish that I had my new camera with me ...
Breakfast at Grandma's.
It just makes my heart sing!

Australian Magpies are fiercely territorial and have VERY long memories - they have been known to attack (even years later) if you have 'ticked them off' at any time - especially when nesting.
However, should you take the time and get to know them, they will reward you with their presence and beautiful carolling song.
