Thread Name: rhymes for counting Magpies
Subject: RE: BS: Magpies
I think that in most places in the world, magpies are black and white, with black bills. Not so in the Central Valley of California - the magpies there have yellow bills, and the black-white coloration is just a bit different. We don't have magpies at all here in the Sierra foothills, a 45-minute drive from my old home, and I miss them. They bullied all the smaller birds away, but they were the most entertaining and intelligent birds I've encountered.
And now, back to your regular program...
