Aby-a-Day – 14 Juni 2020: Lorelai and the Magpie (Swedish Sunday)

One thing I missed whilst living in New England was magpies.


I grew up in the Northern California valley, the only place on the planet that is home to Yellow-Billed Magpies, and they are my favourite bird. The ones we have in Sweden are the usual Black-Billed sort…but it’s stlll nice to have them around.


When we go out with the cats, the resident magpies keep a sharp eye on us.


Mostly. When we went out the other day, this magpie brazenly decided to watch the cats from the ground.


At first, Lorelai didn’t see the magpie.


Until she did.


Rory stalked the magpie for a while.


And then, oddly, she just stopped. I am not sure why.


She didn’t chase the magpie, but the magpie didn’t fly away, either. They just sort of looked at each other.

  1. My husband and I have driven a few times from our home near Seattle to Southern Cal. Each trip we excitedly remark on the first Yellow-Billed Magpie and point out as many as we can find. So pretty and entertaining.
