We also have two pairs of magpies that nest on opposite sides of the property from each other. I feed them at my back door during nesting season and they have never swooped us. They know I am not a threat. They now come up and tap on the door if I am not up early enough. This year they have been super successful. They both abandoned the first clutch of babies they had in our yard as we have no dogs only two magpie fearing cats. Both pairs went on to have a second clutch of babies this season. Awwwww. I love seeing the babies have a bath in the big tray of water I have out near our back door. They are so cute.
