A family of Magpie's have moved into the big pine across the creek, next door to the Tuis.
This afternoon they came over and started redecorating our balcony by pulling down Taubin's radio antenna. I have to say, the work ethic of these magpies is really admirable - they are committed to their task and give everything 110%.
We had a friendly neighbourly discussion around whether we wanted the antenna to be redecorated. There was healthy debate, and negotiation, and after a vote it was decided the antennas would be put back up and stay there.
Can't wait for summer when we can share wine and cheese in the evenings.
