First off, damn magpies like magpies.

And like magpies, they happily devote themselves (in groups of two to six) to making the most extraordinary sounds while hopping about looking for more sounds to make and things to steal. Also like magpies, damn magpies overwinter in Edmonton and enjoy the way snow changes the sound of the sounds they make.
