The Magpie Pica pica
One for sorrow, two for joy,
Three for a girl, four for a boy,
Five for silver,six for gold,
Seven for a secret not to be told. Eight for a wish, nine for a kiss,
Ten for a bird that's best to be miss.
I'm not suspicious, but was glad to see two Magpies high up in the tree tops, and not one!:)
The black and white colour pattern, and extreemly long tail, with a metallic sheen, unfortunately not seen in these poor images, make the Magpie unmistakable.
