We have had a number of magpie families living in our backyard for many years now. When they are hungry they sit on the window sill and peck at the window until we feed them. They know I don't feed them but my wife does so they are non-plussed on sighting me and all excited when seeing my wife. Cath feeds them dog meat. Also they get shredded cheese. One family fed from your hand but this lot will only come close to that. Unfortunately they mess the place up badly. There is four in the current family and you can see one of the others in the back ground. Two adults and two children who fight continually. We have even had them come into the house to eat in the middle of the family room. That's dinning magpie style.
