Last year a pair of magpies built one of their tower nests in the Russian Olive tree outside our bedroom window. This year they are back, or one of the five big fat chicks they raised came back with a mate. All of them lived in that rather small abode. What I like about the nest is they put a roof on it. John loves magpies. They are curious, fun birds. The nest is interwoven sticks and has survived the incredible winds we get here.
