Friday evening and lots of alert calls all along the street. No magpies at ground levil and our lot would not come down for a snack.
Saturday morning and only the 3 adults sighted. Drove down the street to shop and saw a chick on the nature strip 2 streets away. I went back and checked it was dead as it was sitting as if just injured. So not an instant kill. Another car pulled up and a woman taking her cat to the vet had stopped to pick it up if it needed treatment or dispatch. I was worried it could be one of ours as the expulsion season must be near. I knew from the markings it was not Sonia but it could have been the braver one.
Took it home so no one else would need to check and found the complete set at Mandalay.
