About 1978 we had a wild wind storm in Canberra. Horrible weather, gale force 
winds.  I was living in Wybalena Grove at the time. The car ports there are 
grouped separately from the houses, with pitched, tiled roofs.  I had parked my 
car, and on getting out, noticed 4 Magpies sitting up in the carport rafters, 
well out of the wind.  They looked a bit sheepish, but didn't move.  Very smart
