On the way home tonight, I crossed a small park in Melbourne and watched a 
Magpie-lark standing on the ground about a metre from a couple sitting on a 
seat, calling loudly right at them. It wandered aimlessly for a few seconds, 
then stood facing them and gave them another blast.

Lots of people would eat lunch in that park, so I assume it might have learned 
that this earns it a bit of the victim's lunch.

Has anyone else seen this behaviour?
