Cuteness at work

Scoping out my camera.

Baby magpie - will look cute for food.

Here's today's little work friend, he's in the office down the hall from me. I didn't find him, but he's very cute, can't fly at all yet, and likes eating dog food. (That's what the goop is all round the corners of his beak.) When you go up and say hi to him*, he starts quietly chattering to you, and then once he's established you're not foe, he starts demanding snacks and sqwarking.

* he could be a she, I have no idea!

How lovely! I love the noise baby magpies make, my son made similar noises then he was newborn and I calle him Baby Bird.
