I believe that the noun of assembly for Magpies is: A tiding of magpies. I
have a whole list of matters of that kind. It's lots of fun to go through
them with the grandkids. My personal favorite is for Starlings: A
murmuration of starlings. Love that one I do.



HTH,

Dusty

I have a friend in Oregon with scads of Magpies. He would like to know if
there is a name for them, like a "Murder of Crows"
