Last weekend I was mowing a considerable area of long grass which 
displaced quite a number of mice.

One magpie took great interest in this, and even followed one mouse
under a car, after only a little hesitation.

It chased it briefly, then apparently felt there were easier ways of
getting a meal and gave up.

Are mice on the magpie menu normally?
