    Magpie's in my opinion are really nice but they are actually quite mean. They and crows take baby birds out of their nests and drop them on the floor (or that's what I have seen). I always salute when I see a magpie as well. 1 for sorrow, 2 for joy, 3 for a girl, 4 for a boy. And as I live in the countryside, there are lots.
