Our little magpie was reunited with his dad this morning. The adult magpie must have realised that this little bundle of feathers is his offspring and he started bringing food in. This is good news as it takes the burden off ourselves to look after the chick all the time. It’s parents can now take over that role. We will still try to contain him to the fenced area as it keeps him safe from predators as he cannot wander off and be run over by a car or mauled by a dog or cat. We close him up at night in his nest.
Nothing like a wriggling worm for breakfast..
Even dad looks very happy about the situation…
I supplied some food mix which the dad accepted and then fed to the little one.
Please sir, can I have some more?
