Magic of the Magpie

Those who are superstitious traditionally fear magpies. To see a single Magpie is thought to be unlucky. In fact this is not true and should be reversed. A solitary Magpie is a lucky symbol, a precious gift. When you are alone and you see a solitary Magpie it is offering you a wish. When your wish comes true you will appreciate the Magic of the Magpie and you will realise that malevolent spirits, which desire the magic for them selves, shaped this deception to prevent you from accepting the gift the magpie wish to bestow upon you.
Magpies are monogamous and stay together year after year for their entire lives. This is why a pair can be seen a symbol of joy, marital bliss, and long lasting fortune. The bond the magpies have is so strong that if their partner dies, the widowed partner calls other magpies from the surrounding area for a mourning service. This has been observed many times and it is a heartbreaking thing to see. It almost sounds like they are trying to talk the dead partner back to life. 
Each spring the male tries to impress the female by performing an elaborate dance with his wings. The male and female work as a team to create a nest out of twigs and mud, the inside is lined with roots, grasses, and hair. Often the nest will contain shiny treasures that the Magpies have found. 
Magpies and songbird decline: To discover whether magpies could be to blame for the decline, the RSPB commissioned the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) to analyse its 35 years of bird monitoring records.
The study found that songbird numbers were no different in places where there were many magpies from where there are few. It found no evidence that increased numbers of magpies have caused declines in songbirds and confirms that populations of prey species are not determined by the numbers of their predators. Availability of food and suitable nesting sites are the main factors limiting songbird populations.

FAQ

Is my package insured?

The Global Art Company guarantees your satisfaction and we will give you a refund or a replacement for purchased items you are not satisfied with. In the remote event that your package is lost or damaged upon arrival, please contact one of our advisors.

What happens if only a portion of my order is available for immediate shipment?

In order to offer you the lowest shipping rates, we combine similar items in one shipment subject to the processing times of all items in the shipment (see process and delivery times). If a temporary out of stock should prevent available items on your order from shipping when expected, you may specifically request that the available items be shipped separately. This may affect your shipping charges, but you can contact one of our advisors directly for information.
