Hi, I often laugh at the magpies when they look twisted up in their sun 
baking positions, as the weather warms up.. I also have a serious side 
and wonder why ..they indeed do this. Is it..that they could possibly be 
in this dire, dramatic.. heat exhaustion positions to capture the heat 
for better egg production perhaps? I’ve often thought this.. but until 
now, I put my thoughts down in writing. Please, if you know anything 
about this, I’d LOVE to know! 😊
  I LOVE magpies watching they’re antics and listening to they’re lovely 
calls. Do you know..! I’ve just recently heard a magpie imitating a few 
different bird calls.. something in which I have never heard from a 
magpie before. Kind regards… Veronica.
