Flight school

We have several large and tight evergreen trees around our garden that are home to magpies. Last year, we witnessed the spring chicks take their first flight down from the nest, and struggle to learn how to fly and eventually make it back to the family perch, higher up in the trees.
This month of June was not different with a similar routine except that the young “pilots” did a lot of exploring around our yard. Walking much more than they flew and discovering whatever insects or worms that were available to snack on. They all seemed to have fun and like any other species can be playful like all youngsters are!
