magpie vs cat
there's an insane magpie who lives in the tree accross the road from our house. at 5am or so every morning he flies around the locale making a terrific racket, waking all and sundry chez sanders. a magpie's cry is distinctly ugly and annoying. it sounds likes a baby coughing itself to death at max volume.
said magpie is also involved in a heated dispute with a local cat. the cat seems largely nonplussed by the magpie's attentions, which amount to baby-shriek-coughing at the cat repeatedly and circling it.
i am considering knocking the magpie's nest out of the tree. is this cruel? i don't think so. it's a big bird and will find a new home with ease.
