Default 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.

My neighbour had a magpies nest in her tree. There was two magpies in it and they were always fighting Crows who were probably trying to get at the eggs.
Later on in the Summer they was Three Magpies. We are now back to two again.

You can borrow my cat Steve, his predatory skills are well known. Hes brought magpies and pigeons home.

He wouldn't put up with no magpie circling him

we had a cat that used to leave dead birds at our doorstep and waited next to the corpse until we saw him. i guess he was showing us he was earning his keep by wiping out the local bird population.

Tis a balls if you see just one on the bus. To cancel the bad luck you have to salute the magpie and spit.

I don't think I've ever seen a magpie on the bus.
