I Spy A Magpie

…and here we have a magpie in Colorado Springs….How many of you knew that magpie was the star of “Heckle and Jeckle”? They WERE the “talking Magpies”. The Scots had a fortune-telling rhyme about the number of magpies you might meet while out walking:

One’s sorrow, two’s mirth,

Three’s a wedding, four’s a birth.

Five’s a Christening, six a death,

Seven’s heaven, eight is hell,

And nine’s the devil his win del’…

For the record, on this photo shoot, there were two: “mirth” = amusement expressed in laughter…”  

Thank you, Magpie…
