There are thousands of magpies around here and everyone bitches that they’re a menace, but I love them to death. Best birds ever period no questions about it. I mean look at this fucker. They’re sassy little bastards too, and the ones that live around my house mimic the cats and meow all the time.
I will have one someday when I have my own place, though who knows where the hell I’d get my hands on one. I guess that’s a good thing though, corvids are too smart and too high-maintenance to just be sitting in Petco for any douchebag to buy on a whim.
