Bird Watching

COLUMN: Magpies can be clever at catching prey | Sports

The other night, Sandi and I spent several minutes watching a scene not common in this world that, if it hadn’t been played at high stakes, would have been fun. We were parked in the Ivy restaurant parking lot, facing west, waiting for the 5pm dinner time to start. I was looking down the freeway when I noticed what appeared to be a restless magpie flying between cars driving on the asphalt. He flew, descended, dodged a car and started again. Again and again. Weird!
