Still a sociopathic behaviour. Why do they go in cities? They have all the outback and other free areas for themselves. Let me see. Yeah. Because humans throw out free food for them to get, the little bums. Seagulls at least "shop fresh". No garbage containers for seagulls.


Our crows are smart bastards. If you leave food accessible in a golf cart, they will find it, get rid of the wrapping and enjoy your snack.

The magpies not so clever. They just loiter hoping for a handout. Crows just take it. But.....there is one magpie at the Club who will swoop to pinch the food out of your mouth. Funniest thing ever. Mate of mine, huge bloke with a shitty quick temper got whacked by that bird while he was actually putting a sandwich into his mouth. Well, all Hell breaks loose. There he is swinging his club at the bird swearing his head off. Bird just toyed with him. Stupid woman on a nearby fairway (not having seen the bird attack) tells my mate, 'Leave the bird alone, you arsehole!' Jayzuz....all that did was give him a human target to verbally abuse and he did not miss!

Yeah, I've had hem take food from my hand as I was about to pop it into my mouth. No biggie, they're fearless scavengers, but still harmless.

Magpies however will claw and grab your hair as hey swoop. No comparison

Lol, kind of a good point when I think 'bout it. I won't dare argue about that.

CROWS actually have the smartest brain in all the airborne kingdom. Maybe even surpassing chimps and dolphins at overall IQ and decision making. CROWS can do sophisticated mathematical calculations in no time. By the way how do I embed a YouTube link since it doesn't happen at all??

we have very smart birds here.

I've seen Kookaburra's battering all the crap and poison out of a dead cane toad, by repetitively bashing it against a tree branch, back and forth.
It was the whack whack noise, that kept on and on that attracted my attention. Once something dropped out it got eaten, and the Kooka flew off.

And Yes ..crows are very smart, tool-using creatures.

Magpies are marvellous.. I've actually seen more than one magpie trial.. where several birds circled a single bird.
One was just outside my front door. ( I have my own magpies... wild, that raise their chicks here every year) They definitely know me, because I've never been swooped on by local maggies. )
They were castigating this one bird.. by their songs, and behaviour, and the recalcitrant magpie was actually making appeasing moves... amazing.
It couldn't have been clearer.

OK I saw it now. My browser was blocking my own video and marking it as "insecure content" and prevented it to load so I couldn't see it. You're a lifesaver!!

Okay, but it still bugs. Won't load my video. I have to click on a small icon near my bookmark icon and click "LOAD UNSAFE SCRIPTS". I'm running CHROME.

Just defs. Stock package owns it. Doesn't show up on other websites. And don't forget I'm a web designer. It's what I do for money.

You're very welcome, M.

I'm sure you would've did the same if it was you. I like to post information oftentimes so detailed, maybe helps someone. I like posting notes so it stays in like an archive.

And... I wouldn't recommend doing this, since it won't PROTECT you from other dangerous and malware links and spammy sites, but on your own risk, to make that permanent:

From Google's Support page:

We do not recommend turning off alerts.

On your computer, open Chrome.
At the top right, click More More and then Settings.
At the bottom, click Advanced.
Under "Privacy and security," turn off Protect you and your device from dangerous sites.

Great respect for seagulls, lesbian or not. Seagulls can ruin your life pretty easily if you don't act smart around them.
