Some time ago while driving on a country road close to my home in East 
Gippsland I hit a Magpie head on. I stopped and looked back. Immediately the 
other members of the Magpie family flew down to the dead or injured bird and 
began pecking at it vigorously as it lay there prone on the road. 

This experience has always remained a mystery. One can only speculate as to the 
family’s intentions.
