Magpie Versus Squirel !!...who rools da roost ?
« on: 30/09/2007 20:26:46 »
Hi Peeps,

How are ewe ?..I'm well..a bit tired !!..been on my feet all day !!
Thanks for the chat but if I can get a word in I'd like to ask a question !!..sheesh !!


This morning when it was very ' a.m '...I saw this:

 

eating some bread I had chucked on the garden the previous night...

..beside it was this...



Nothing unusual in that....but...the magpie was intent in getting the particular piece of bread from the squirrel................not enough to drive it away but was fairly consistent in trying......In-between attempts  though it would just go and eat the bread on the lawn !!

Whyjafink the Magpie would try to get the bread from the squirrel when there was an abundance of bread already ?

Having your nuts pinched by a magpie would bring tears to your eyes.
