saw a magpie hiking up the big tree by the window, holding a sizeable stick in her beak.
she's building a nest at the very top
they were hard at work again this morning. turns out magpies build in couples! I hadn't noticed the other one up there, assembling things.
they carry impressively large twigs, and seem to be unable to just fly to the nest. they hike the big tree upwards branch by branch, making short flights to cover empty spaces.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
