Protecting the babies - Explored
The other day when I was out taking photos I felt something swoosh past my head and when I looked up I saw this magpie. I told it to behave itself but it divebombed me three more times before I gave up and went home before it made a direct hit. The next day I spotted this little baby magpie in my garden and realised that the adult was just trying to be a good parent. At first I didn't think it could fly but as I got closer for my photos, it took off into the trees.
