Hi all,

Threesome Magpies are visiting our garden for some time.  One male and two females felt confident enough to bring their three fledgelings.  I have seen Magpies with two babies and their parents attending to them.  But three seems to be very rare.  Are they offsprings of two female magpies?

Any comments please.
