The Best Defence

Mother magpies defend their young
When it is the nesting season,
Then they are hard to move among.

When it is the nesting season,
Mother magpies are aggressive,
They cannot comprehend reason.

Mother magpies are aggressive,
Set primed and ready to attack,
They are certainly possessive.

Set primed and ready to attack,
If silly humans come too near,
They probably will not come back.

If silly humans come too near,
Magpies may dart in their faces,
Children may start to live in fear.

Magpies may dart at their faces,
Therefore make sure big hats are worn,
If they must pass magpie places.

Therefore, make sure big hats are worn,
So they will not come home forlorn.

G'day Beth … certainly an aggressive bird when young are in their nest. For the rest of the year they are such a charming and friendly family to have around the yard, but it appears, once a swooper always a swooper - thank you Beth - Lindsay

Thanks, Lindsay, I agree with you - one learns to cope with the nesting season.
