Magpie is friends with tabby cat and kangaroo (cute video)

Female magpie ‘Ninja’ was reared by hand in Australia and it shows. Her name gives an indication as to her boisterous and confident behavior. She is quite vociferous too in the nicest possible way.

Ninja lives with her kangaroo and tabby cat mates in Australia with Anandii Macrides.

“She was a tiny little fluff ball who had fallen from the nest on a windy night. She was so young her beak was still soft, I had another little magpie girl then too called Chip. So I’ve raised her since she was tiny. She thinks I’m her mum.”

Macrides says that magpies are brilliant at facial recognition. She believes they can tell the difference between nice and bad people. They live for 20 years.

“[Magpies are] particularly friendly to people they don’t perceive as a threat or people who have shown them kindness” – Macrides

They are aggressive when defending their offspring in spring and summer. They tend to attack passersby by swooping on them.

Hi, I am 70-years-of-age at 2019. For 14 years before I retired at 57, I worked as a solicitor in general law specialising in family law. Before that I worked in a number of different jobs including professional photography. I have a longstanding girlfriend, Michelle. We like to walk in Richmond Park which is near my home because I love nature and the landscape (as well as cats and all animals).
